Been bashing my head for a few days.

I have an Athlon 64 X2 3800+ (AM2).

Some AMD threads imply the K8 Athlon 64 X2 range on AM2 all support AMD-V.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C...son_of_AMD_Processors

I am using XenSource and Windows VM's will not boot - Linux VM's boots fine. For Windows VM's to boot the CPU needs to support AMD-V.

Does anyone know if the Athlon 64 X3 3800+ should support this, if not which AM2 Athlon does?

Thanks in advance,
Chris.

MANAGED TO FIND THE ANSWER.... SPOKE TO AMD THIS AM - ALL AM2 Athlon 64 X2's SUPPORT AMD-V.

I HAD TWO DODGY WINDOWS ISO IMAGES... :-(

WORKS A TREAT USING XENSOURCE + PARAVIRTUALISED DRIVERS FOR MULTIPLE WINOWS GUESTS ON A SINGLE DUAL CORE CPU... AWESOME.

Sure they do and that was one bonus for me when going from my old Opterons 240 to X2 6000+, but K-10 that is about to come out have some serious improvements in virtualisation area...

To what ? First, slow server K-10 chips ? Who cares for those, I'm waiting for lean and mean K-10.5/Agena !
