Computer Type (ACPI? MPS?) Tags: Computers Processors Windows XP Last response: August 18, 2007 4:15 PM in Windows XP Share Psi57 August 14, 2007 3:12:39 AM I just built a new computer with an EVGA NF68-A1 mainboard + an Intel Q6600. I'm a bit confused about the "computer types" selection in nLite (or regular Windows XP for that matter). Given the previous components, what should my computer type be? Here are my choices: ACPI MultiProc Use for a multiple-processor ACPI computer ACPI UniProc Use for a ACPI multiple-processor board but with a single processor installed Advanced Use for a single processor motherboard with single Configuration processor ACPI computer Power Interface PC Compaq Systempro Use for a Compaq Systempro computer MPS Uniprocessor PC Use on non-ACPI computers dual processor motherboard with a single processor installed MPS Multiproc PC Non-ACPI computers with a dual processor running Standard PC Any Standard PC, non-ACPI, or non-MPS. Could be a 386, 486, Pentium, Pentium II, or Pentium III Standard PC with C-Step i486 Currently, I have an nLited copy of XP on the computer (with "standard pc" selected) and it works fine, but I don't see any processors in the device manager. CPU-Z only sees one core / thread. Help please Edit: I should also mention I am using the newest nVidia BIOS (new card) and newest nForce (motherboard) drivers.

Since all new motherboards are ACPI compliant, choose ACPI Multiproc. Standard PC doesn't account for multiple processors or power management. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
