    about HPET & windows 7 for SB7x0 chipsets

      enabled HPET makes LPC bus errors for SB7x0 chipsets


      Windows 7 can not write FDD (XP does, but do not use HPET) for the SB7x0 chipsets. People say (http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git;a=commit;h=73472a46b5b28116b145fb5fc05242c1aa8e1461), that it is probably HPET issue and it is required to disable HPET while LPC in work.

      Is it real hardware error for SB7x0/SB8x0 chipsets or the Windows 7 can not work with the hardware? Any ideas to combine HPET and LPC bus?
