    You need to update the BIOS.
  2. Make sure the cpu is compatible..

    Please read the post before responding with your ridiculous answer. It's the same cpu and mainboard his computer came with, so obviously it's supported. :hello:

    You need to do bios update with the i3, then install i7.
