IRQ Conflicts with Server 2003

  1. How do I disable/change certain IRQ's and Resources in a Server 2003 envrionment? I am having a IRQ 15 conflict, between the Secondary IDE Channel and the System Board. How do I go about changing one of these to a different IRQ? I have 3 or 4 that are available. Windows also will not let me change or realocate resources (the area on the interface is grayed out).and being that I just built this machine and am the admin, I have all rights and permissions.

    Not a good thing to do. What happened to the defaults normally selected at start-up?
    IRQ's about 12 are trouble to deal with, unless you haver very specific changes in mind. Since you apparently built the system, the answers should be in your motherboard manual.

    I usually disable any ports I don't use and can safely disable in the BIOS to free up IRQs.
