1. I have your excellent Super Server 6013P-8+ and want to install Windows 2003 Server with a single processor. Is it possible to configure Windows so that when I add the second processor I will not have to re-install the operating system (OS)?

But all the LED’s on power supply are lit green which I believe means the Power Supply is good. Any suggestion on what may be causing the alarm trigger ON and how I can turn OFF the alarm?
