You took one CPU out because the board misbehaved. All bets are off. I 
would blame the lack of 2nd PCIe slot and 2nd ethernet on the same 
hardware fault that caused the 2nd CPU to misbehave. Different firmware 
is not going to fix faulty hardware.
It may be just a fault in the single CPU configuration but you have no 
way to tell. The only thing you know for sure is that there is a 
hardware fault.
