HAL error
Hi, asked a few days back but no responses. Getting the following in event
viewer window logs/system:

Source: HAL
Event ID1
Initialization of the High Precision Event Timer failed due to a BIOS
configuration problem.
The operating system will use another available platform timer in lieu of
the High Precision Event Timer.
Level: warning.

This is the only error in event viewer, it does not appear to have affected
performance, I did not get the error on beta or RC1.

Board: running gigabyte GA-965P-DQ6 bios f9 latest, drivers latest for vista
(the
worlds first premium ms certified mboard!)

3 sata2 HD's not raid
intel core2duo e6700
2 gigs corsair ddr2 800
nvidia 7900gtx
620 watt psu

I am dual booting with XP, there are no errors in xp event viewer.
I have intel storage matrix installed, have tried with the gigabyte and
wiothout the gigabyte sata controller (additional sata ports) installed -
same error either way. HAve tired bios in various configs - same error.

No response in a week from gigabyte.

Can someone please explain this error and its implications + any suggestions
to rectify.
