    Hi,
    Forced Hardware is hardware that has resources (Interupts, addresses, etc) assigned to it manually (forced to use those resources)
    rather than letting the operating system assign them automatically. Most modern hardware does not require manually assigning these resources and that is why you don't see any listed.
