Disable CPU cores from Windows

Disable CPU cores from Windows

I'm using my DL380P G8 as a workstation. Most of the time, I don't need all 16 cores. I can easily get by with half of them. But, there are times when I do need as much processing power as it can give me. So, is there a way, from within Windows 10, to do either of the following.
Disable and re-enable cores without requiring a reboot.
Do the above and requiring a reboot but NOT requiring a trip into the BIOS?
It will be sooooo much more convenient to click a button or run a script to change the CPU core configuration, and let it reboot while I run downstairs for coffee and pork rinds.
Do I absolutely HAVE to provide a signature to "complete" my profile? If I do, this is it. Enjoy.

First of all Windows 10 not supported with this server.
