Can I install RAM on CPU2 RAM slot if no 2nd CPU is installed?

By rthomas ·

I have a HP ProLiant ML150 G6 Server that came with 4 GB of RAM and 1 CPU preinstalled. The motherboard itself supports dual processor, which the 2nd CPU slot is unutilized at the moment.

I bought a pair of 2GB RAMs yesterday to boost the total memory to 8GB. But I have been unable to get it working together eventhough I followed the manual (, which instructed me to install the RAM pair on memory slots for CPU1 and CPU2.

Do I need to have a 2nd CPU installed in order to get it working?

Yes you need the second CPU fitted which has to be identical to the one fitted tot he CPU 1 Socket.

You can not fit different Speed CPU's tot he different sockets they both need to be identical.
