APIC switch-off without reinstalling Windows

Post by M.Gerber » Thu 16. Feb 2012, 15:55

Hi!

The PCAN-ISA card (as well as the PCAN-PC/104 card) must be run in a PC with APIC mode disabled. If you need to change this low-level setting in the BIOS setup, usually Windows cannot restart afterwards - a reinstallation or a repair installation of the OS is necessary.

Fortunately, this can be circumvented by installing the necessary driver in Windows before switching off the APIC mode in the BIOS setup. :idea:

The corresponding procedure is posted in the following thread:
