I hope that you fixed your problem without troubles by now, but if you still have not, I can help. I added a second xeon processor to my Dell PowerEdge 2600 a couple of years ago.
Lay the server on its left side then loosen the three thumbscrews on the right front side and "slap" the cover off backwards.
You should have by now identified the current processor by running cpuid software that I think comes from Intel's website in order to buy an identical cpu. That was the hardest part, finding an identical one still for sale. If I remember the Poweredge 2600 could only use xeon processors with only up to 512 kb of cache or someother small amount and are not that available still new in the box.
You also have to get two identical voltage regulator modules (vrm). I was not able to get a second one for some reason and just bought two identical ones specifically for the xeon processors that I was using. Be sure to do your homework on this. MATCHING cpu's and MATCHING vrm's.
That's it. Each processor has two cores and you should see all four after you boot.
Another thing to think about would be setting the processor afinity to run your most intensive process to all four cores while only letting most applications to only use the first core.
I hope this helps if you haven't already had any success.

Hi the Power Supply also needs to be upgraded for the additional RAM and new CPU . Please look into this aspect. My opinion a slightly Overrated PS would be better .

The BIOS check can freeze for many reasons.
Can you tell me if this is an existing system that was working fine and then had this problem, or is this a new (or new to you) system?
Can you give more information on what is actually showing on the screen?
