That system was acquired via the Intel ILP program. We've forwarded your
note, and someone from Intel will be in touch with you regarding
upgrades/replacement. Of course, I encourage you to purchase a new
PowerEdge 7150. :-)
In general, B2 processors are no longer supported, you need at least B3 or
C0 processors, and newer BIOS. It's likely that SuSE's kernel was built to
specifically not support pre-B3 processors. It's highly likely that the
next IA-64 kernel patch will drop support for pre-B3 processors entirely.
