Problems activating SMP

Reported by: Hansi Owned by: pasha
Priority: minor Milestone: Release version 3.11
Component: ACPI PSD Version: 3.09
Keywords: Cc:


Motherboard: Asrock - AM2NF3-VSTA OS: eCS 2.0 rc5

USBEHCD.SYS has to be after 2x USBOHCD.SYS in config.sys or otherwise it does not boot with /SMP /APIC (/TMR /CD) switch. I think it hangs at usbresmg.sys.

This does not work with ACPI 3.10. I have not found out how to boot with 3.10 and SMP yet.

Hello eco, it is working fine, but not out of the box. I have to change the order of usb drivers first with version 3.9 and earlier. With 3.10 it was not possible to boot with smp yet.

best regards

OK, updated FAQ:

9) If APIC mode

if eCS doesn't boot anymore then

  • Detach all USB devices.
  • If using Bootable JFS, then boot from bootable eCS 2.0 CD and chkdsk x: /f

if USB doesn't work then

  • try boot with /CD switch.
  • try boot UHCD controllers drivers first, then EHCD drivers. or USBOHCD.SYS then USBEHCD.SYS
  • try disable UHCD or EHCD drivers
