Processor Stepping 0001067A 00000000

After upgrading processor from a E6600 to a E6700, i get a "1801-Microcode Update Error. Missing or Invalid Processor Microcode Update"


The E6700 processor is refered in the manual as a compatible processor.


I've also tried a bios upgrade from v1.16 to v3.07, with the same error.


Please refer to me an apropriate bios update to solve this problem.

You installed the wrong E6700 processor which is not supported, even with a microcode update.


The 2.66 GHz E6700 Conroe processor is the one that is supported, not the 3.2 GHz Wolfdale one.
