FDIV Processor Replacement

Pentium® processor Replacement (FDIV) Information 
  If you have a -xPx or -xQx complex (even the mighty -xPx), chances are it has the FDIV bug. Intel will swap out your processor with a like processor. Same speed. No upgrade for the FDIV chip is available. Read the stuff on this link. It will give you the phone# and the requirements for swapping the chip out (Includes the CPUID program to identify the presence of the FDIV bug). You will have to give them a credit card number.
   They will send out a non-FDIV chip and a pre-paid shipping envelope. You pop the old chip out and return it to Intel. If they do not receive the old chip within 30 days they will charge the credit card number.
  I had my replacement in under a week of my call....

178 POST Error
Laust Brock-Nannestad cried:
   I managed to get hold of one of the much sought after P90 complexes
(FRU 06H7095), but when I put it in my 9595A (replacing a P66 complex), it gives me error 0001 7800 and halts. The numeric error code guide on Louis' page tells me:

0001 77XX / 0001 78XX 
Security error. Passwords corrupted. 
Reset Passwords

   I tried setting the password override jumper and removing the battery
until it had lost the contents of the CMOS (the only two password-related 
things I could think of), but neither procedure made any difference. The 
error happens quite early in the POST, first it runs upwards to CP 32 
(skipping some numbers along the way), then down to 11 and then displays the error message and halts. Nothing ever appears on the monitor.

> Perhaps, I should elaborate on a few things. The system never reaches a point where there's any activity on the floppy drive, thus it never tries to boot the reference disk.

Us, the god-Emperor of Microchannel
Hey Peter, I wonder if the BIOS is downlevel. A BIOS 03 or lower might
hose things up, though I was able to boot with an 03...

> More news when I have it, at least the processor card isn't entirely dead. Can I safely upgrade the BIOS with the processor card seated in an older 8595?

Us, the god-Emperor of Microchannel, took a SWAG:
   Yes you can. Flash to 08 if you can. Try booting with the 08 flash disk. I originally thought that the refdisk had to be an earlier version, but you might be able to F1 past an error and still boot to the flash disk.

Laust does cartwheels and says:
   Success! This was exactly what I did. I booted the 8595 with the flash disk and it proceeded with the upgrade. Upon the next reboot, I got the friendly IBM SurePath boot screen and then errors about the invalid complex (which were at this point, to be expected). Configured with the Ref disk, rebooted.
   Everything was fine.  Then I put the complex back in the 9595A and it booted, completing POST for the first time. After reconfiguring, the machine now boots like normal (and the 90MHz on the front looks rather sweet ;-)  Next is adding back the cards (It's currently stripped down to just the XGA-2 and processor complex), but it seems to be working OK.
   Oh yeah, QCONFIG told me the old BIOS revision level was 03.

Diagnostic LEDs (Extrapolated from the Type 3 information)
   The Type 4 processor board  has two LEDs; one in position CR1, and one in CR2.

J3- Serial port connector to operator panel board.
JMP5- The "Flash ROM bank" switch -by the way- was originally planned for a sort of "emergency mode". Once you screwed up the Flash-BIOS you could toggle the bank, insert any working flash update in the FDD A: and restart the  machine, which takes the flash-image from the floppy drive and recovers (as it can be done on the 704 in the "Bios recovery mode"). However: the base boot-BIOS did not have the required routines to delete the loused up bank of the Flash-ROM ... and as far as I know the loading of an image from Floppy  does not work. Another useless feature. 
Serial Link J5 Artifact-  on Type 4 complexes  (-xNx, -xPx, -xQx, -xYx)
     The serial link was (as far as I know) intended for the use with an earlier system management adapter, which didn't made it to the salesroom. The idea was to supply a sort of status-link to the processorboard and the   SCSI- adapter(s) and the (possible) backplanes on the later servers. 
J6- Known but to God. Shocking news! This jumper has been reported on a P66 complex!!

06H3739 vs. 06H7095

 There are two FRUs for the P90 complex-

 If you go to the EPRM it says:
 (wrong Pentium® 90MHz Processor Card !) 06H3739
 Pentium® 90MHz Processor Card                 06H7095

Oliver Schweizer said 
   I once called the spare part hot line and they told me that the 06H7095 is intended just as a replacement for a crashed complex. According to them the number change came because the original complex could contain the bug-ish P90 and the replacement unit not. If I remember correctly they asked about 1500-2000 $ for the 06H3739!! A real tempting offer ;), but after weeks of sleepless nights I decided to stick with my type 2 complex (and got the pentium power now for about 5% of that price).

Upgrade Information
From Peter
   FYI: I reworked a P90 platform today with a wire (and two solderings) and stuffed in a P-200 Non-MMX. Worked fine so far. Didn't have an appropriate heatsink at hand, so I cannot say anything on the long-term stability and any nasty side-effects.
   At the moment I'm soldering a DIP switch onto the P90 platform to set BF0/BF1 accordingly to whatever core/bus ratio is needed. Maybe I install an adjustable clock generator on that thing too ... but I lack the time a bit.
   Something I found out during my experiments: a platform with an 80497-60 reacts rather funny with higher speed CPUs. I stuffed in an 80496-66 and it worked much better. Got some silly cache errors (0129 xxxx) with the 497 cache controller. And the output voltage on the CPU regulator dropped to 2.5 Volt from 3.3 ...

No explanation at hand for that strange behaviour (yet).

P90 to 180 MHz W/O Soldering
   Involves soldering a wire between three pins on an interposer (PGA LIF socket). It's called a "Terminauter" after the hacker. Look HERE

CM-174 Universal Adjustable Clock Multiplier Adapter Kit 
   Originally tried and reported by Carroll Bloyd. After working fine for a short while, the complex died. For the info, look HERE

PL-ProMMX Iinterposer from Power Leap
Reported by Luigi Zambotti
   At last I succeded to put some power in my 8595. After having  replaced the 60MHz crystal with a 66MHz type (from Digikey.com)  I purchased a PowerLeap PL-ProMMX interposer, put on it an Intel 200MHz CPU (not MMX!) and everything worked fine from the beginning.

Power Leap Units that Failed
Reported by Luigi Zambotti
   I have also tried:
1. Evergreen Spectra 233  but it didn't worked;
2. PowerLeap  PL-ProMMX interposer with an Intel 233 MMX Cpu
3. PowerLeap   PL-K6-III interposer with a WinChip 200Mhz Cpu
