Adding second CPU to Proliant ML530


I will add a second cpu to my ML530. The system is running W2K server. Do i have to change anything in W2K to get Windows to see the second CPU ?.

W2K installed on 1CPU machne is default set as ACPI Uniprocessor PC. When you add second processor you should:
- right click on My Computer
- choose Manage
- choose Device Manager
- unfold Computer
- right click on ACPI Uniprocessor PC
- choose Properties
- choose Driver and Update it with W2K standart driver ACPI Multiprocesor PC
- Reboot

and that's all.
