    Thanks Peter !

    I was not aware of the hidden "CTRL-A" feature on RBSU, so I never met
    these configuration settings ("Service Options" added in main menu)

    I already was in "Power regulator mode : Static High mode"
    QPI Link power management : Disabled

    I have latest released I24 BIOS
    DMI: HP ProLiant BL460c G6, BIOS I24 01/29/2011

    1) I disabled "Power and Utilization Monitoring" _and_ "Memory
    Pre-Failure Notification"

    Still I got the 'MSR 38d is 330' error

    2) I then disabled Intel Turbo boost

    Same error

    3) Minimum Processor idle Power state
    From C1E-State --> No C-states

    Same error

    Tricky isnt it ?
