I was reading this thread and I'm just curious.
Ok here's the Cliff Note version of what happened... I think?
msconfig advanced boot option was manually set to 4 cores on my computer, since my prior processor was a Phenom II X4 830.
I also have an OCZ Synapse 64Gb Cache drive, that is controlled by Nevelo Dataplex software. With the software installed, the cache drive is invisible to the operating system.
Any time the Dataplex software is enabled, it seems to disable the system reserved partition on my hard drive, even after uninstalling the Dataplex software, the reserved partition has to be manually
re-enabled in disk manager. Once re-enabled I was able to access the advanced startup options in the mconfig boot menu, and change the # of processors to 8.
My problem seems to be unique to those who have Dataplex software enabled cache drive.
Hope this helps.
