Windows 7: Core2Duo utilizing only 1 Core?

Windows 7 RC 7100 32bit/64bit

yes, now I have 2 cores on boot up, and no detect hal enabled, but it recognizes 2 cores. I guess it found it once and we're good now.

Thanks again.

That hal option is interesting you know more about hardware abstraction layers? can they be customized to switch between them? what's the use of that? I have 3 DLLs in my system32, hal.dll, halacpi.dll and halmacpi.dll...

Windows 7 RC 7100 32bit/64bit

ok then...another question: you posted a solution about a day ago for a guy who wanted to disable his startup sound..

You found that imageres.dll contained the option to disable it, along with other options, as I found. Would you happen to know which dll should I resource-hack to fix the resolution problem with LG X110 not displaying the correct boot screen, cause it has 1024x600 resolution instead of 1024x768? I've searched everything

bootvid.dll, bootres.dll, winload.exe, winload.exe.mui, etc...

Actually I only found that dll because when you customize an icon that was the file in the address bar and I was poking around it to try and find the default folder icon so I could swap it for a blue one that i customized after extracting them from the dll and it was by pure coincidence that I stumbled across the windows startup sound.

Thanks I guess I'll wait for a bios or windows update for that LG, or perhaps the final version.
