LGA771 Xeon CPU in LGA775 Systemboard without BIOS microcode update

HP DX2400 MicroTower
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (32-bit)

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...

HI.

 

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.
