Not sure if this is the right forum, but since this is a Dell forum, I'll ask here.
As the title implies, I have installed a new Xeon E5606 in my PowerEdge R410. Greased the heatsink and installed that as well.
I have a 500W redundant power supply and there is 16GB of ram on that processor's slot.
The fans go on full blast as usual when I plug it in. About 30 seconds, I get an error on the front LCD screen saying "E1410 System Fatal Error detected." When I remove the processor, I can boot normally into ESX. Leading me to believe that I did something wrong with the processor.
What did I do wrong? It should be the right socket, and the right RAM. I'll double check that and let you all know.
