P5Q Pro Turbo X5470 Xeon support?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone,

I've just stumbled across this site and thought i'd ask if anyone had a modded bios for the P5Q Pro Turbo to run a X5470 Xeon properly?

Here's the situation..

My spare machine is P5Q Pro Turbo based and until yesterday was running Win10 using an E8500 core 2. I had a X5470 through from Ebay, popped the sticker on it, chopped out the socket tabs and in it went. The BIOS popped up and all was well until windows tried loading..
This machine now doesn't get past the blue windows logo. Putting a win 10 usb stick or install DVD just gets as far as the same blue windows logo. A Vista disk gets happily through to the installation options on this machine, and the Win10 disk gets through to options on another machine so it isn't the media. I can only assume windows 10 doesn't like this CPU, or there is something missing from the BIOS which Win10 is looking for?
I did a fresh Win10 install on this machine from a USB stick after the update so I know that works too..

Any thoughts? Might a BIOS update make a difference? I'm using the last available beta BIOS fyi.

Sorry if this has been covered anywhere else, I did search!

specifically I think it needs updating to support CompareExchange128? I read on http://www.delidded.com/lga-771-xeon-microcode/ that 'adding the Xeon microcode will usually restore that functionality' but i got lost when trying to add the code myself!!
