Adding Second Intell CPULocked
I have a dual processor capable motherboard. I currently have a single 400 MHz PII installed running windows 98. I plan to replace 98 with NT Server using my current hardware setup (one CPU).
I plan to add a second PII 400 MHz after NT is installed. Will NT Server recognize the second CPU after it is installed or are there any changes to the registry that need to be made?
I was shopping for the PII today and the sales person said that both CPU’s must have the same batch # or there will be problems. He went on to say that adding a second CPU to NT that has a different batch # will work but there will be performance problems. Please advise me on this one because I do not think it is necessary to have to buy two processors at once when you can upgrade you server later when it needs it.
