Default dual processor

i have a crap load of IBM intellistation z pro's 6899-12u i need to make them run dual processors so far i have put in the other processor and gone into the device manager switched the processor from uniprocessor to multiprocessor but when i reboot the computer and go into the BIOS it says dual processor not installed and i cant find the driver on the internet for it anywhere.

i was hoping that someone would be able to help me out with this. also this is for school and i am getting a grade for this please someone help me.

maybe a BIOS upgrade so it will recognize it? or is that what you mean by not being able to find the drivers?

btw, that is some old school hardware...lol maybe that's the problem!

Hmmm... do you know if they worked before you got them? Cause they could just have bad connections.

you're trying to link two CPUs on the same motherboard? Are you using Socket 7? Or Socket 370?

I had a Socket 370 motherboard that had a Slot 1 CPU expansion (main CPU) and another expansion in Socket 7 that I could mount another CPU to. Thus giving me two CPUs. I never actually did it though, I retrieved an older Pentium CPU and it was ONE(!!!) pin off from fitting, so I don't have experience actually enabling it, however, if you did get both to run, then you'd be blazing fast! I mean, sure the processors are slow compared to today's standards, but you have TWO processors, two is always better then one.
