Vista Advanced BOOT Options - PCI Locks

Okay, so I'm messin' around with settings in Vista HP, tailoring the boot to my specifications and I clicked Advanced boot options and up pops this windows that allows me to choose how many processors and max memory. The next option available is PCI Locks with a checkbox.

What the hell is it, should it be compared to PCI Locks from within the BIOS? I dont have PCI Locks on my MB, so if this option does what it says, then I might be able to get higher clocks?

Anyone know what the PCI Locks option is in Advanced BOOT options within MSCONFIG?

ok, so does this mean that nobody knows what the PCI Lock option in the advanced boot configuration menu does?

Additional Comment:

Windows reassigns resources to PCI devices at boot up. These settings are saved in non-volatile memory and are "partially" used during subsequent PCI hardware installations. There is a bug in this software which can assign and share resources between cards. Most of the problems related to SensAble's PCI interface card have come from the sharing of resources between PCI cards in the system. After installing the SensAble PCI interface card, some of the resources (particularly the interrupts) can become shared. This can result in "blue screens" if the non-SensAble PCI card does not recognize non-native interrupts and tries to process SensAble's PCI card interrupts.
Most of this can be alleviated by adding the /PCILOCK option to the boot statement in the boot.ini file (usually located in c:\boot.ini) before installing the SensAble PCI interface card. If you have installed the card already and are having problems, remove the card, edit the boot.ini as below, shut down the system, install the SensAble PCI card and then power the system back up.
For more information, see the Microsoft knowledge base article Q148501 - Preventing PCI Resource Conflicts on Intel-Based Computers.
The PCILOCK option will maintain resource assignment for installed boards as long as they are still valid. This will reduce the chances for shared resource assignments after the SensAble PCI card is installed.




Hope this helps
