I have a Gateway 5028 Media Center Edition with Windows Vista Beta 2 RC 1 (Build 5600) installed. It is equipped with an AMD 64 x2 Dual Core Processor 3800+. However, I believe Windows isn't recognizing the second processor. I see only one graph, and task manager will not let me set the affinity. See the image.

Is this something Vista caused? Is there a solution to it? If anyone has any ideas or help or suggestions, I'm all eyes. (Since it's text and you read it and not hear it, get it? )

And yes, Windows shows I have a dual core system.
