whats that now? absolutly not true

read the thread again and show me where I said that but to help you out: I 
said that I (I!) have problems with X2 processor with very specific memory 
amount installed on certain hardware when SMP is enabled

don't turn my words around

you are more clever than that aren't you? Or do you try to get clever with me?

means: makes no sense that the bios is broken on all MBs I tried

overall you cut the important thing where I said that I did tried other bios 

and what you say here has nothing to do with all of this because the bios 
updates you're talking about are necessary on certain MBs in order to 
recognize the X2 - so we are beyond this point ...
