Deleted AMD processor from Device manager.
Popped out Athlon 3500+
Popped in Athlon dual-core 4200+.
Windows Vista x64 detected the new processors with no problems.
Is the current AMD dual core processor driver v 1.3.2 from June 2006
functional in Vista x64?
Has anybody tried it?
I don't want to trash my Vista rc2.

Carlos:
I'm running the AMD 4400x2, with Vista RC2 (5744) x64. I have 2
processors listed under processors, driver date 6/21/06, version
6.0.5744.16384, source Microsoft. I haven't tried installing the AMD driver
since the available driver wouldn't install on beta 2.

I've only tried it with XP x64 and it does work there. With Vista, the
built-in AMD CPU driver with RC2 should be fine as long as you:

1) Boot into your BIOS setup. Write down any settings that are not default.
2) Turn your computer off, reset your CMOS (usually with a motherboard
jumper and/or removing the CMOS battery.
3) Swap the CPUs.
4) Reboot into the BIOS setup. Update any settings that weren't default
in step #1.
5) Check to make sure your BIOS is recognizing the CPU correctly.
6) Reboot into Vista. It should work fine.

Should work fine without installing the AMD driver. If it were me, I would
wait until they release one that specifically says it supports Vista before
installing it.

The driver in the Vista base is from AMD and is the current
driver which supports single and dual core CPUs.
