CPU HALT bug in the Rollup

Recommended Posts

MS has (finally) acknowledged the CPU HALT bug in Windows 2000 with the Rollup installed. To fix, it's just a registry entry. I gues HFSLIP doesn't need to revert to the old version of halmacpi.dll any more (if it did after we found out about this).

I made this into an inf file a while ago. Does anyone need a copy of it?

Ummmmm.... this was fixed a long time ago with hfslip. HFSLIP slips the rollup halmapi and already applies the proper registry info.

Ok. Thanks tommyp. I know it was posted a while ago, but I just mainly wanted to post that MS finally acknowledged it.

Thanks, guys (and the_guy). It was a worthwhile post for my machines that weren't created with HFSLIP or the G-Man's SP5. :yes:

guy, I have a few machines here at the office. If you would attach your inf file, that would be great. Thanks again

Thank rChaz. We fixed this in Dec '05. TommyP is on the bal!! :D

Thanks for the link.

The attached is the_guy's inf file.

Addition:

guy, the code in your inf is slighlty different than what MS and Gurgelmeyer are posting - Yours:

HKLM,"System\CurrentControlSet\HAL","14140000FFFFFFFF",," 00000010"

vs.

HKLM,"SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\HAL","14140000FFFFFFFF",0x00010001,0x00000010

Does it matter for a post install?

Addition 2:

Tomcat76's inf:

[Version]
Signature = $Windows NT$
AdvancedINF = 2.0

[DefaultInstall]
AddReg = AddReg.Halt

[AddReg.Halt]
; 239887
HKLM,"System\CurrentControlSet\Control\HAL","14140000FFFFFFFF",0x00010001,16

HALT.INF

HFSLIP uses a shortened version since April 23:

HKLM,"SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\HAL","14140000FFFFFFFF",0x10001,16

So a standalone INF can be this:

[Version]
Signature = $Windows NT$
AdvancedINF = 2.0

[DefaultInstall]
AddReg = AddReg.Halt

[AddReg.Halt]
HKLM,"SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\HAL","14140000FFFFFFFF",0x10001,16

@the_guy: thanks for the info :)
