It is impossible to install unsupported processor in vendor BIOS therefore I must use coreboot. 
before tired to use some external program but any one doesn't run because BIOS is from Compaq.
I don't know if coreboot will be work on HP XW8400 (?) if not I cannot help myself because I can't programing.
