When I open the Device Manager and Hit >Computer, it shows "Advanced
Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) PC"



I want to change this to ACPI Multiprocessor.



I right click "Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) PC" hit
>Properties >Driver Tab >Update Driver

Then Check the "Install from a list or specific Location (Advanced)"radio
button

Hit >next

Then Check the "Don't search. I will choose the driver to install"

Hit >next

Then Uncheck the "Show compatible hardware" box

The only items listed are "Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI)
PC" & "Standard PC"

There is no option for the "ACPI Multiprocessor"



How do I change computer in the Device Manager to "ACPI Multiprocessor"



Thanks
