DevCon.exe command

Recommended Posts


I'm running a DevCon script to update the Hal on a VM W2k3 svr. It made it into the first of 4 "devcon sethwid...." command lines, but is hanging there for about 20 minutes now. The cmd window is using about 50% of the CPU. I don't want to kill it and cause any damage.

devcon sethwid @ROOT\PCI_HAL\0000 := +ACPIAPIC_MP  > nul    rem ACPIAPIC_MP  replaced MPS_MP
devcon sethwid @ROOT\ACPI_HAL\0000 := + ACPIAPIC_MP > nul 
devcon update %windir%\inf\hal.inf ACPIAPIC_MP  > nul

I've eventually working this in as an option in a GUI, but I'm not sure if Devcon is working as it should.

Any help is great appreciated.
