    Hi all,

    I've read in the manual that there is an option in the bios that makes it
    possible to disable the bios id of MP-capability. According to the manual,
    this will make it possible to use Athlon XP cpu's.

    Have anyone done this and is it working ok with Athlon XP cpu's?

    Thanks for any help.

    Best wishes

    That's true.


    I have modified Athlon XP 2400's working just fine on that motherboard.

    What do you mean by "modified" Athlon XP2400?

    Have you done something physically with the cpu's?

    Thanks for your response,

    Best wishes,

    The Athlon XP is a chip incapable of SMP operation out of the box.
    you can modify it by reconnecting the last pair on the L5 bridge and it can
    now be used in SMP mode. Much cheaper than buying 2400MP's

    And a lot less safer. Weird lock ups? Strange problems? No thanks, I'll
    pay a small premium and sleep better.
