ML370 Multi-Processor Support

Greetings...

I have a dual processor ML370. Both processors are the same. Both are being detected during POST, but Windows 2000 Server only sees one in the Task Manager performance monitor. There is no option to view "each processor in a seperate window". Is there another way to see if both processors are being detected? If not, am I missing something from HP to enable the second processor in WIN2K?

Thanks for your help!

Re: ML370 Multi-Processor Support

you have to tell the OS that you have a 2nd processor installed.

Open up the device manager
Under "computer" you will see ACPI Uniprocessor PC
Right click this and choose properties
Then go to the drivers tab and click update driver
Click the radio button to display a list of known drivers for this device
hit next
select ACPI Multiprocessor PC
and next finish.

reboot and you should be good to go.

Re: ML370 Multi-Processor Support

They are both detected now. Thank you!

The only concern I have now is that one of the processors is "Stepping 1" and the other processors is "Stepping 4" (according to W2K System Information). Maybe I was lying when I said they were both the same?! Is this a concern?
