Win2k - Processor driver

By glenn.aasen ·
I've added a new Intel processor in a Compaq Proliant server. Bios has accepted both processors, but when i changed driver from 1 uniprocessor-driver to a compaq-multiprocessor driver in Win2k, everything hangs after restart. So, anyone know how I can change a processor-driver without reinstalling Win2k?

Win2k - Processor driver

by McKayTech In reply to Win2k - Processor driver

Microsoft has an article on TechNet (Q252326) with some things to look for (e.g. APCI enabled and set to Full Table Mapped or Full Table) and also has a link to the Compaq site for the software (but it sounds like you already have that).

You should be able to save the existing data, but I have sometimes had to do a parallel installation to get around the hanging on restart (you basically do a fresh install into a new directory and then copy the multi-processor DLLs from the new system directory into the old one).
