Re: Can the Pavilion g7 connect to 5g wifi?

HP Recommended

Firstly, apologies to the community and Paul for posting an related question to this thread. I am shame-faced, but I'm new and don't yet know how to contact an individual just yet.  And the thread I want to respond to, is closed. So please forgive me if I interject here, I don't know what else to do to get to Paul.  😞

This is with regard to this thread, ?

Paul, you gave help with microcode update, to upgrade from a E1200 cpu (with CPUID, 6FD) to a E8400 cpu (with CPUID 1067A).
Does this mean your micro-code patch will work for other cpus with CPUID of 1067A ?

I'm asking to see if you think your patch will work on the Xeon X3363 which has the same CPUID. is reporting, the E8400 and the X3363, have the same (CPUID/Family/Model/Stepping) info.

Again, sincere apologies to everyone...
And any insights you can share, Paul, is greatly appreciated.

If you have a dc5800, below is the link to the quickspecs which list the supported processors on page 7.


Unfortunately I would not know the answer to your question.


Since the  Xeon X3363 is not a supported processor. the microcode update may or may not work.


All you can do is run the microcode update, install the processor, and see what happens.


If I had to make a bet, I would say it won't work.
