New Xeon's are giving me BSOD

Hi Microsoft and Community,

I recently upgraded my PC from windows 7 to windows 10 during the free upgrade.

At first it all worked fine, untill I plugged in two new Xeon's that I bought.

For some special reason, if I put in the new processors, they give me a BSOD during start up.

Could it be that the processors aren't compatible with Windows 10?

I got 2 Intel Xeon X5260 @ 3.33 GHz atm.

The ones I want to plugin are 2 Intel Xeons E5440 @ 2.73 Ghz.

Anyone knows the answer to this problem?

Seeing that the x5260 are dual core and the e5440 are quad core ( date line 2007) I'm sure you need to also update the bios as the CPU's will work with Windows 10. suggest that you check with the maker of motherboard and ask them. also you could try a clean  install of win 10 using another Hard Drive.

How are you trying install Win 10? another tip is to remove one of the cpu's and see if it will install. post some info about your system, make/model/motherboard would help.

Hi Tycho,

You haven't said which build you are running but for the Insider builds: There appears to be a problem with Hyper-V on Xeon processors. I suggest you try disabling that and see if it has any effect.
