I did and I was impatient perhaps. However they have responded and I am posting it here just in case someone else may have this question.
Here is the reply from ASUS
"You need a processor that does work with the bios the system has.
If you do not find an other processor, you can not update the bios because the system is not posting.
Therefore, you need to contact ASUS BIOS department at 502-995-0883 ext. 6907 and request bios chip with the latest bios software version installed." end quote.
After further reading it appears that ASUS also installs a sticker on the motherboard box that states it is ready to run X2 chips if indeed the enclosed Motherboard has a bios on it already capable of running dual core. I didn't know that and since it was an online purchase I couldn't examine the box anyway. LOL
