Description (last modified by eco)

Hi

Hardware: Asus M2N mainboard using the nForce430/MCP61 chipset

acpi v3.14 installed

No change from v3.13 and previous releases observed so far:-

System does not shutdown/reboot using the eCS2.0RC5 supplied eStyler; shutdown.exe may or may not work - it sometimes hangs and sometimes reboots instead of power off.

Cannot boot without the /!NOD switch - posted this problem previously and read that this should be fixed in v3.12; I am reporting about v3.14...

The /TMR and /CD switches also required.

Only change noted here in moving from v3.11 to v3.14 is the change in version number...

Hopefully v3.15 will come closer to working with this system.

Regards

Pete

e-co:

Can you remind me why don't you like /!NOD switch? What are the restrictions for you in everyday usage of the OS in this case?

The answer to the above question exists in ALL my previous reports.

The M2N mainboard with Vidia nForce430/MCP61 chipset WILL NOT BOOT without the /!NOD switch if using the /APIC switch.

This goes back to v2.22, or thereabouts, that being my first attempt at getting ACPI working with this system.

So, why do I not like booting using the /!NOD switch?

Because, as I understand it from the skimpy documenation, use of the /!NOD switch nullifies the /APIC switch.

I have also been told on several occasions that the system should boot without that switch - within this reporting system.

I also understand from reading posts within this reporting system and elsewhere tha it is purely accidental that use of the /!NOD swicth allows some nVidia chipset based systems to boot.

Enough reasons?

No, I do not use PowerOff?.exe - that looks nasty.

I do use either the Warp4 shutdown - no eStyler extended shutdown options - or Ctrl-Alt-Del to reboot and simply press the Off button.

We should understand, what is the problem? ACPI or shutdown managers? Please use test utility PowerOff? (ACPI utilities)
