I'm pretty new to this forum. I have got a DC7700 Convertible Minitower which had a Core 2 Duo 2.4GHz processor and I changed it to my Core 2 Quad Q6600 at 2.4GHz and it boots up fine.
Despite all these other posts regarding the incompatibility of Quad Cores with the DC7700, I can finally confirm that the Q6600 is fully supported.

v3.07 Intel vPro Bios still no go with sff dc7700 & q6600 : error 1802.
dc7800 sff motherboard on ebay for $14 can support q6600, among x5470 3.33Ghz Quad 12MB Cache with lga775 to 771 socket mod and sticker. Which the dc7800 sff motherboard looks the exact same nearly and will fit dc7700 sff chassis.

Use the dc7900 microcode, it fixes the bug https://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp51001-51500/sp51181.exe download rufus, make a msdos usb, copy over the files from swsetup to the usb, reboot, run flashbin in dos, it asks you if you want to downgrade from 1.06 to 1.01, accept, should be successful, enjoy your Q6600 or e7600 without speedstep or processor support errors 🙂
