Thunder HEsl S2567 ACPI problem

Discussion in 'Tyan' started by Rainer Leberle, Jul 1, 2004.

  1. I'm trying to install Windows XP Pro on a Tyan Thunder S2567 dual-P3 board
    using the Serverworks HE-SL chipset and I cant get ACPI to work.

    When I install XP with ACPI on and Plug-n-Play-OS on I cant get the
    integrated serial, parallel and Ethernet interfaces to work. I get loads of
    resource conflicts between them and even with manual resource assignments in
    the device manager I dont get them all to work.

    I contacted Tyan support and their answer was: "The Serverworks Chipset does
    not like ACPI. Disable the ACPI in the bios and attempt to install your
    system again."

    Is that Chipset / BIOS really that buggy ??
    I did upgrade to the latest BIOS 1.05a, which is from 2001 so it isnt very
    likely that Tyan will release a new one.

    Unfortunately when I install XP with ACPI turned off I loose the
    functionality that after shutdown it also powers off.
    Any workaround for that ?

    any help appreciated
