Not all semprons can unlock successfully....most probably the other core was defective in your case. Bad luck :(

The core will unlock successfully. Thing is the BIOS has no idea if the unlocked core is defective or not.

In your case, its clear that the unlocked core is unstable cause it doesn't even let you boot into windows :) 
You can try reducing the clock frequency, or over-volting the chip to see if the 2nd core becomes stable, but i highly doubt it. :)
