    Hello from Germany!

    Im running a DELL Latitude E5500, latest BIOS.

    After installing a INTEL Core2Duo (T7300) the following message shows up before booting any OS:

    ***Processor Microcode Update Failure***

    The revision of precessor in the system is not supported.

    Strike F1 key....

    When hitting F1, the normal boot process goes on and W7 is running fine.
    What can I do in this case? Dell does not provide a newer BIOS for the machine.

    ty for your assistance!

    Best regards

    Peter

    This post is old, but I am having the same issue with my Dell Latitude E5500. I upgraded to a T7800.
    I have Dells last BIOS update A19. I am getting the same message.
    I was told that the BIOS does not have the microcode to accept the processor.
    Any help would be appreciated.
    I am new at tinkering with the BIOS.

    This site has a valuable amount on adding/updating microcodes : http://www.delidded.com/
    Although the intention here is slightly different, the procedure would be the same.
    Not sure if it will work with a Dell bios though. I'm struggling with an other brand OEM BIOS myself at the moment but maybe worthwhile to take a look.
