2nd cpu won't install on intellistation z pro 6865

    I am having some trouble getting a 2nd xeon 550mhz to install on my
    intellistation z pro 6865. It looks like all 3 of the xeons i am
    working with are functional, as they work in the system as a single
    with the terminator plugged into the second slot. But as soon as a plug
    a second xeon in, it will not boot. It does give a system board error
    and a memory error when I install the second cpu. Otherwise, the system
    gives no errors when running a single cpu.
    If anyone knows if this is just a glitch and has a solution, or that
    maybe the second slot is toast, I would really appreciate some help.

    are they MATCHED cpu`s

    they need to have the same stepping so they need to be the exact same models
    of cpu.
