Intel® Core™ i3 Processor & Server 2003

1. Strange are the ways sometimes when we get troubled by the PC.In an attempt to upgrade one of the PCs to Intel® Core™ i3 Processor,I found a problem I never thought of.

2. Now just to give u a small brief,I have a small office complex with about 15 computers on Server 2003 which was running fine till one day when i just decided to upgrade my server machine to Intel® Core™ i3 Processor.I bought the combo pack of this processor with its motherboard for about 11k,i assembled it and started with the setup of server 2003.....started nicely but this would never install completly in my 'N' number of attempts and would hang halfways.....then i thought like Murphy is acting fine with me and their is some problem with the processor motherboard replaced the same pack with a new one..but the problem persisted....i contacted the local dealer,surprised with the problem he himself attempted the same but met with the same end.....

3. I changed my installation CDs ,still met with the same problem...finally I could arrive that there may be some compatibility issue between server 2003 & Intel® Core™ i3 Processor.........and reverted back to core 2 duo,the earlier one.

4. I would request readers to augment their comments, if any, with such a problem being faced anywhere else.

  4. @KAMAL perhaps the lone solution is uptodate patch of server 2003,the one generally floating in the market is not updated with the SP3.....i had this similar problem...could be solved only after i updated it with the latest recommended by AGHA.....
