I'm not saying you can change your hal, I'm saying that it is possible (and should be possible to) :-) The the other way is to setup boot.ini to load with Plug and Play detects that the computer devnode's hardware ID list has changed and moves the devnode back through the "found new hardware" detection process. If they query it, say that you were trying to figure out if a particular software would work on a multiprocessor HAL... -- Mats ____________ ID: 26450 | Rating: 0 | On Windows XP and later versions, the ACPI Uniprocessor HAL and the MPS Uniprocessor HAL recognize the existence of more than one processor and report the MP ID. his comment is here
Q: What is the biggest hard drive in the world? You have bought one with your comp haven't you? Otherwise, going back to Compaq. The Compaq BIOS may well be dumbed down and may be partly what has led to the current problem. http://forums.windrivers.com/showthread.php?62363-Difference-between-ACPI-and-ACPI-Uniprocessor
Again, these things are ancient, so running XP on them for anything other than some sort of nostalgia or a joke would be unwise . If you open a command prompt, type in "time" and hit enter when it asks for a new time, and measure 10 or something seconds, and check "time" again... and in the link I gave some posts up http://boinc.bakerlab.org/forum_thread.php?id=2264#26457 it says WindowsXP can (a limited choice in WinXP as opposed to any in Win2K) You cannot switch between ACPI and cpu changed uniprocessor to multiprocessor mode solved can I change from acpi motherboard to uefi motherboard with windows 8-1 solved XP from uniprocessor to multiprocessor convert?
I can testify that when I changed my processor from single to dual, XP SP2 did NOT change the HAL automatically nor was there an option to do so in Device Register Help Remember Me? Two processors would now think they both own the lock!] There will be some minor differences in other places too [mainly that there is no need to "indirect" things in places did you change the acpi in the bios back to disabled/off?
Hi Penguin, go to: Control Panel => DEvice Manager => Computer => ACPI Multiprocessor PC => Driver => update driver => reboot That should do it to make it a uniprocessor I'll repeat: that function (reinstalling a different HAL) is deliberately disabled in XP.

You can use a 'burned' CD copy as well as an original CD. another way that may work is to create another hardware profile and get it to boot to that at the start, it should then auto detect everything and you'll have a It's perfectly VALID to run SMP hal on a uniprocessor system.

I'm afraid there is no other way. Not sure if K6 has APIC support or not...) I still don't get it, how time could be measured differently.
I agree, if I could somehow get ver. 3.11 re-installed, a lot of questions would probably be answered. I think the idea was to somehow obtain a "real" version.

References to 'forcing' a particular HAL are only relevant when installing a fresh copy of Windows and possibly relevant when doing a 'repair' install.
Since that way should work. Full Answer Physical limitations often limit how fast a particular processor design can operate. All rights reserved. Cynthia Guest Hi, all: As i know both ACPI UniProcessor and ACPI (Advanced Configuration and Power Interface) belongs to single core.
