Win2000 on Cyrix P150+ not identified correctly
Posted on 2000-02-21
I have recently installed Win2000 on a P150+ Cyrix based machine for testing. I have found that the processor is being identified as an 80486 ~ 1035Mhz processor. The Mhz ID although wrong, does not bother me but the ID of 486 does. When I try to install MS SQL 7.0, it wont let me as it needs minimum 586 processor to install.
I believe that this process or SHOULD be identified as a 586 based processor.
Can anyone tell me how to get win2000 to ID my processor properly and for some reason if this is properly, how can I "mask" the processor ID to be higher?
