I have too an image of a Acer FH with a dual processor. I restored the image to a HP DC5000 that is a single Core processor. Now when I start up the HP everything goes well but I see this error CPU does not support "eist". I have gone into the BIOS and put everything back to defaults but I still get this error. Is there a way to disable this? I don't think the HP supports EIST..

    EIST - Enhanced Intel Speedstep Technology

    Making a guess here....happen to know what model your processor is?  It may not be supported.  Check the bios for model information and see if it corresponds with EIST support from this list:
