|Q: Why does Microsoft report problems with PCI to IRQ steering in the device manager? |
This is caused by Windows 98 inability to recognize the driver. There is not problem at all with the system or functionally. If you wish to correct this, follow the steps below: (note the exact spacing)
Find the file "Machine.inf" located in the Windows\INF directory.
Make a backup copy of this file.
Use a text editor such as Notepad and find the section called: [GENDEV_SYS]
Edit the following line with a remark ( ; and a space)
; %*PNP0C0F.DeviceDesc% =IRQHOLDER_DRV,*PNP0C0F ; ACPI IRQ Holder
Next edit [IRQHOLDER_DRV] with these lines:
Next edit [IRQHOLDER_AddReg]
Finally, remark out this section:
Save the file and reboot. Check the device manager to make sure that the PCI steering is now correct.
