Question Does a u-boot for a single core board works for a dual core board?

Hello everyone,

I have a board with dual IBM PowerPC 750GX Microprocessor. And I have a u-boot for PowerPC 750FX Microprocessor. Firstly the u-boot I have is slightly incompatible with my board which has a newer cpu (GX as compared to FX). When I loaded that u-boot to my board, nothing happens, it does not boot up.

Aside from the possible memory mapping differences, does having two processors affects u-boot? I also have a board which has dual 750FX core, but the 750FX u-boot (for single core) that I have does not work. What are the configurations that I can take a look at?



750fx, 750gx, powerpc
