Processor does not support cmpxchG16b

I have an Intel Q9650 core 3ghz overclocked to 4.5ghz quad processor.

I have been running windows 8 64 bit since it was available as an upgrade from windows 7 64 bit.

I am unable to download and upgrade to windows 8.1 as I get a message saying that my processor does not support cmpxchG16b.
I have run Coreinfo and that confirms this.

However, someone who has the exact same processor as me has run Coreinfo and his reports that his processor does support cmpxchG16b.

So, could it be a motherboard issue? Do I have to alter something in the bios to enable support for this?

My mobo is an Abit IP35 Pro XE.

I would be grateful for any advice.

Not much help, but i'm running 64bit Windows 8.1 on a Q6600 and P35C-DS3R. I'd expect your setup to work if mine does.

Have you got the latest bios installed?

Abit went **** up years ago so bios updates simply won't exist. Same with DFI really.

I reject your context, and substitute my own.

I have the last official bios that Abit released before they decided not to make motherboards or support the ones that were sold.

Perhaps there is an unofficial one out there that could help me but I am struggling to find it if it exists.

I have got my ip35 xe out of retirement.
Will attempt to install 8.1 and let you know how it goes.

I have a q9550 and some Kingston DDR2 around somewhere.

Yes ABIT went TU years ago.
No BIOS updates only community ones.

Can you confirm if your board is the same as mine?
IP35 Pro XE, as I am sure you know there are others with similar names.

Any idea where I can get an updated bios as that is probably my problem?

My bios is: W627DHG-6A790A10C-11 dated 05/26/2008.

As far as I am aware that is the latest official version.

Yes same board
IP 35 Pro XE

All the links to the BIOS files seem to be dead now.
Files for the IP35 PRO are still available but not the XE

I will have a look on my PC's to see if I still have the ones I downloaded but
it was quite some time ago.

If I cant find the original download I could backup the BIOS I have running and you could try that.

Yes please.
I would like to upgrade from windows 8 to 8.1 if at all possible.

Just need to find the flasher program now although I might have that on a very old hard drive somewhere under a pile of dust.

Freedos should work with Award, you can create a bootable USB drive

I use the HP USB Disk Storage format tool and tell it to use boot files from win 98.
Got those in a directory on my HD.

My old DOS boot key just give up the ghost as I bent it quite badly last time I used it.
Hit it with my knee
It was on old 128MB one not much use for anything else but ideal for DOS and memtest.

Made a new bootable key and got a BIOS backup.

Upgrade completed and everything seems to be ok.

Have overclocked again.

Have run Coreinfo and it now shows as supporting cmpxchG16b, so I should now be able to upgrade to windows 8.1.

Thank you for your help!

Happy that worked out for you.
Must admit I get a bit nostalgic when I use the IP35.

4.5 is a big clock, 500x9 I guess.
Do you run that all the time or max benchable ?

My q9550 wont get anywhere near that.
480x8.5 is max for me.
