Are you running any programs that will use the parked processor, could just be idle, try running some intensive software then check
If not sure you could always run prime95 on it which will stress test the cpu but don't leave alone while doing it as temperatures can rise quickly so be sure to monitor

That's for boot only. Boot will use all processors by default unless you limit it by selecting that option. That should be left alone.

The only ways I can see a parked core happening on a desktop are:
1. The power options are set for a laptop or for the highest power saving option.
2. Windows is a hacked version from a laptop.

I know it should be left alone.
May I still see it?

Recently i check the Task manager, i saw only 1 CPU is running. But i check the Resource Monitor, it said i have 2 CPU running... i am happy it's running, but later i think the second CPU doesn't run at all
