Dell Precision 690 upgrading to 2 quad cores X5365 Xeon Processors, but the system keeps saying Alert Incomparable Processors halts at checkpoint Ithr, LGA 771 socket, and 32G ram. BIOS A08. I do not understand the issue. It will not boot completely. Any help is appreciated.

What did you upgrade from?
Did you find any reports of Dell Precision 690 owners doing that same update successfully?

I had same error when i upgraded to 5355 quad xeon 2.66ghz with A08 bios, what solved my problem was resseting bios. But every time i unplug the power i have to reset bios. I was told that dowgrading to A01 bios would solve the issue, but i havent got around to it yet.
