Regaring the dreaded 5-second-kernel limit in Windows XP:
I am using a GeForce 5200 (PCI) as my display adapter, and the 8800 GTS as the GPU. The Windows desktop is NOT extended to the 8800.
While this prevents the maching from hanging on kernel runs longer than 5 seconds, such kernels return with an “unspecified launch failure.”
Questions for the panel:
Is it possible to run kernels longer than 5 seconds under Windows XP – say, with two PCIe cards and a different motherboard? Has anyone got it to work? (If so, what’s your configuration?)
If it’s not possible, is this limit permanent for Windows – one card, two or more cards, whatever?
