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.  😞


Paul,
This is with regard to this thread, https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/dc5800-microtower-microcode-upd... ?


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.

Cpu-world.com 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.

Hi:

 

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.
