Hi again,

Uff, thanks Age, I have always liked Gigabyte and probably would have gone that way if not for your reply.

Yes, me too. Always liked Gigabyte, but Tech-Support wasn't willing to help and for this really small fix, it's sort of a poor support :-/ But, it's not impossible. I finally archived to modify the BIOS and re-enabled the AMD-V support. Though, I don't understand why Gigabyte disabled it. I doubt that it is a stability issue, because the motherbord runs rock-solid here ;) I guess it's just a marketing thing. My M61P-S3 is a low cost board and maybe the +100$ motherboards have the Virtualisation-Feature available...? But it's just a guess...

This is why I hate so many commercial BIOS's, and hope hte LinuxBIOS project really takes off. So many of such features are concealed or mis-set by default, and it's very difficult to reset the system defaults. For example, even if you reset it in a BIOS with VT or HVM available, you will revert to the default if you fail reboot 3 times in a row, and you can't reset it without hands and eyes at the console.

This sort of thing is why I prefer to stuff fake keyboard widgets onto the PS/2 port, rather than rely on BIOS resetting to allow the system to boot without a keyboard attached on so many server class systems.
