Hello. I've just upgraded a collegues Athlon 850 system to an Athlon 5050e with ahci controller active and everything. but I can't find a way to convert windows' kernel to a multicore supporting one, and I don't really dare replace kernel32.dll and hope that everything else just magically works.
Is there a way to do it properly? I mean without actually reinstalling windows from scratch? And would it be updated to multiprocessor if I'd use a windows cd to reinstall it? (think I tried that yesterday to no avail actually)
System's running fine, but I can't make both cores work. Even a prime95 can't stress the system enough to raise the fan speed (stock fan) beyond 1300rpm! (aiming for 50C).
Hope someone's got a solution for me. for now he'll just have to live with only one core.
ps. don't buy an msi board! I used to find them acceptable, but that msi updater version 3 is rubbish! It has less idea of which drivers to update than my grandma would have!
