The IRQ sharing is not a problem most of the time (99%). I'd recommend leaving ACPI the way XP sets it up.

The reason IRQ's are shared is to make a ton of virtual IRQ's, so to speak, but the current hardware limitations have it appear that a bunch of them are on the same IRQ.

As long as you're not having problems, you can leave ACPI on.
ACPI helps keep that CPU cooler too.

IRQ sharing is not a problem. Leave ACPI the way it is when Windows is installed. Only change it as a last resort to reinstalling Windows.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
