    Help! Rome 2D16-2T with 2x Epyc 7532

    This is very odd. The system worked fine before with 8x 64GB 2400 LRDIMM, and 1x Epyc 7532. When I plugged in the second cpu, no matter what I do including power cycles and cmos clears, the board always gets stuck in post code A7. Swapping sockets had no effect. Any ideas?
