Windows 2000 Server Dual Processors

By cso ·
I have received from Microsoft the evaluation copy of Windows 2000 Server.

I originally installed Windows 2000 Server with 1 processor installed. I have now added a 2nd processor to the dual processor motherboard. When I boot up the system, the bios recognizes the 2nd processor. However Windows 2000 Server does NOT appear to recognize the 2nd processor.

Am I missing something or do you know if the Eval copy supports dual processor?

Thanks

you need to install the system drivers so that the OS will recognize the second processor. I can't remember the resource, but you should be able to find a reference to adding another cpu in the Help section of the operating system.

good luck.
