Not 100% on this but wasn't there a bios upgrade that needed to be done to make a processor display? I sold my ex47x so Im going off of memory. Sorry if that's not a help.

Jason,

Try doing a search on this site, i'm pretty sure you'll find something about it. The only thing that might shortcut you is a dead link. If you cant find anything here, try searching on one of the other forums that's still up.

Last resort is wegotserved using wayback machine.

These two links below from Toms Hardware will get you going in the right direction.

Summary of the upgrade and chart of compatible chips: https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/me ... 171-6.html

BIOS mod instructions (this doesn't look like it's for the faint of heart): https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/me ... 171-9.html

TH confirms that with a patched BIOS, the ex47x servers can identify LE- and BE- class AMD processor. But unfortunately, only two of the five needed links on the TH page are still working, The links for CBROM 1.82, and the donor BIOS's from the Shuttle ss21t and the Abit AN9-32x are dead.

Not to worry, they appear to be live at the links below:

http://www.lejabeach.com/CBROM.html
http://global.shuttle.com/products/prod ... ductId=246
https://files.aoaforums.com/I3544-m601b18.zip.html

The original MSS postings the TH pages were sourced from are found below. Between both, you can hopefully get your server going.

viewtopic.php?p=10271&highlight=#p10271

Good luck and let us know how it goes.
