Is there a way to change from “APM” to “ACPI” without installing Windows Server 2003 again?
Right click on My Computer Properties Hardware Device Manager Click on the + beside Computer Right click on the HAL name & select Properties Driver Update Driver Install from a list or specific location (Advanced) Don’t Search You may need to unselect the “Show Compatible Hardware” – and then select Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) PC Remember: If there is anything referring to an APIC in your system BIOS, set it to “enabled” to allow an arbitrary number of IRQs (eg, IRQ 21, IRQ 19, etc) And more important: Windows detected your PC as NOT being ACPI compatible for a reason. If you install the wrong HAL, the fix is a bit hackish. IF you need to ask how to change the HAL, you won’t be able to figure out the fix.
