I have a new TYAN S7002 motherboard. It supports up to two Intel XEON processors on CPU0 and CPU1, but I am only planning to use it with ONE XEON 5505 (not planning to use CPU0 and CPU1 simultaneously).
I am experiencing two issues though.
- Problem with MEMORY SLOTs on CPU0
When I put all RAM DIMMS on their sockets (4x2GB) motherboard only recognizes 6GB. I removed one by one all the memories and it turned out that there is one slot that is no recognizing the memory. I know all DIMMs are working because I tried them separately on one of the working slots and they all worked just fine.
My question here is: Is there an option to enable all RAM sockets to work on TYAN motherboards? What could be wrong in my configuration?
- Processor works fine on CPU0 socket but it doesn't on CPU1 socket
Even though motherboard specs say that XEON processors should work on either one of the sockets, I am getting a FF code when I try to boot from CPU1.
My question here is: Is there a special configuration to get CPU working on CPU1 instead of CPU0?
