How do I assign a specific IRQ number to a specific PCI slot on Windows XP Pro 32 Bit system? From what I understand ACPI needs to be disabled, preferably by way of F5 during fresh XP Install.. After this is done, do I still require a motherboard that has a setting to manually set IRQ number in it's BIOS? If so does anyone know a Socket 1155 Motherboard with this feature?

XP's ACPI feature will not be used for this system. It is being circumvented to meet necessary ends.. The card will only communicate properly with it's accompanying digital imaging system if it is operating in PCI slot 2 with IRQ 10 running windows XP pro 32 bit. Also, apparently between the comm card and the software needed to operate the device no processors with logical cores, i.e. Hyperthreaded will work.. I've seen it working properly on an HP Compaq 6005 Pro Microtower with Windows XP Pro 32 Bit with a Pentium D processor.. I only hoped there was a more modern board available, like socket 1155 with IRQ settings available as to utilize corei3 or i5 processors.. What is likely the latest generation of motherboard that will allow IRQ programming?
