Problem With Quad 8360SE and Windows Server 2008 Tags: New Build Windows Server 2008 Boot CPUs Systems Last response: August 20, 2009 6:37 PM in Systems Share fast toys August 20, 2009 1:31:06 PM I have tried everything and I have been having no luck getting Windows Server 2008 to boot with all 4 of the 8360 CPUs in the mohterboard. The system will boot and is stable with 3 CPUs but will power the system off during boot if the 4th one is put in. The system will load, boot and is stable with 4 CPUs if I use Linux but not Server 2008. Any help would would be greatly appreciated.

Only real suggestion I can think of is are there any BIOS updates available for your Tyan board? Otherwise, you might have better luck finding an answer on microsoft's forums for a specific Server 2008 issue. fast toys August 20, 2009 3:03:08 PM It is very strange and I can't seem to get a fix. I might have to open a support ticket with MS but really do not want to pay to find the fix if possible. Does anyone know of a good MS Server forum???? I have tried a few with no luck yet.

Best bet would be to wait until testing is done and they put out a bios update. -Wolf sends Can't find your answer ? Ask !
