I upgraded the firmware prior to installing the new CPU... any ideas?
new Cpu is Xeon E5 1620 V2
Simply get fans spinning and nothing onscreen at all, as a couple of otherbpeople haveposted in other forums.
Is there an undocumented procedure, or is a Recall or Lawsuit in order?

Here is the recent thread discussing the issue:
Bottom line: the system may not be compatible with the v2 CPUs.
(if my post was helpful, please "mark as a solution" or give "kudos" - thanks)

Thanks for the tip, but unfortunately there is no posted solution in that thread for the Z620.
Anybody else have success upgrading their Z620 Cpu to V2 and steps followed?

If there is no update path, it's simply false advertising, especially when HP releases a Bios that clearly states it is compatible with updated intel processors...
Being that HP advertised the upgradeability thru public statements, will these workstations be recalled for a fix?
Is it Intel or HP's responsibility to issue recalls or refunds? Who should we pursue for financial remedy?
