Hi,

I'm working with firmware code and would like to confirm ACPI Timer Emulation configuration. Which document is relevant to check how to configure that MSR?

Best Regards,

Piotr Król

Hi Carlos_A ,

it is not helpful. Mentioned document doesnt' contain information about MSR 121H (aka 0x121). This is MSR with ACPI Timer Emulation bit inside.

Please consult experts and point me to correct document.
