Can't POST after CPU change

Hi all,

 

Wondering if you could help - Just changed the CPU on the Gen8 microserver to the i5 3470T. It will no longer post successfully and gets stuck on 90% progress on the "Early System Initialiszation, please wait.."

 

Any suggestions?

The BIOS version is marked 11/02/2015 on the initialisation screen. After looking around google that seems to be the latest BIOS for the Gen8.

 

Im using the stock memory that comes with the system if that would make a difference.

iLO does not appear to be reporting anything apart from it restarting. After leaving it running it now will not go past 20%. Then the power cuts out and it restarts.

Update to this: I have put the stock CPU back in and it now boots correctly, still not sure why it doesn't like the i5.
