Windows XP Embedded supports the full CompactPCI (cPCI) hot swap model as defined in the CompactPCI Hot Swap specification (PICMG 2.1). You can create a run-time image that permits cPCI boards to be inserted into and removed from your cPCI target system without shutting down.

In Windows XP Embedded, a management application can use the Plug and Play API and configuration management APIs to receive and handle cPCI hot swap events.
