Views: 1851

This switch allows Windows to terminate interrupts from the hard disk controller, bypassing the ROM routine that handles these interrupts. Some hard drives might require that this setting be disabled in order for interrupts to be processed correctly. If this setting is disabled, the ROM routine handles the interrupts.

Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\FileSystem]
Value Name: VirtualHDIRQ
Data: (00 00 00 00 = disabled, 01 00 00 00 = enabled)
