Description

ACPI 3.00, nVidia high IRQs vs. old drivers

From: mikeforester source: http://forum.ecomstation.ru/viewtopic.php?p=8143#8143

I finally discovered ACPI 3.00 and installed it. It's nice to see all the high IRQs.

Only problem is, old drivers (SBlive, SYM8XX.ADD) won't load with their new high IRQs. They're both physically on IRQ 11, but with the new ACPI they're mapped to 17 and 18, respectively. The drivers can't find the hardware, although it does show with PCI.EXE. Any tricks to work around this?

I put "REMAP 17 to 10" and "REMAP 18 to 11" in /os2/boot/acpi.cfg, but that didn't seem to do anything.

Also, using the /ALS switch on this motherboard causes the system to hang as soon as ACPI.PSD loads.

OK, SYM8XX.ADD is added to the list of drivers not ready for APIC (ACPI-SMP-DRV.doc)

Is there no way to just prevent ACPI.PSD from changing the IRQ?
