Is there any chance that LGA771 Xeon CPU will work in LGA775 Systemboard without BIOS microcode update?
1. My Systemboard is HP-DX2400MT - IPIBL-LB (MoBo) and it supports Pentium Dual Core/Core 2 Duo/Core 2 Quad CPUs. I want to buy any same spec Xeon CPU and I want to know if if it is possible or there is a change that it will work without microcode update?
2. or Generally is it possible ? do normally 775 MoBo BIOS has 771 microcodes?
P.S I know that it may domage PC, not recomended and shouldn't do such upgrade, thanks...

Not without modifications and a custom BIOS that supports Xeon processors. Your motherboard hasn't been tested, but you could be the first one who does. Worse that could happen is a ruined motherboard and CPU.
