I have integrated the open source Xen hypervisor 3.4.3 RC1-pre and
Jeremy Fitzhardinge's pv-ops dom0-patched kernel into my
64-bit build of ChromiumOS. With the integrated Xen virtualization
support, you can now create and run virtual machines or guest
operating systems in Google's Chromium OS. If you do not have a need
to create virtual machines, you can simply run ChromiumOS64 as a Xen
domU virtual machine.

To run Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 2000, Windows
Server 2003 and/or Windows Server 2008 as a hardware virtual machine
(HVM), you need to have a processor with hardware virtualization
support, e.g. Intel VT-x or AMD Pacifica.

To enable PCI/PCI-e and/or VGA pass-through to HVM virtual machines,
you need to have a motherboard with a supporting chipset capable of
Intel Virtualization Technology for Directed Input/Output (VT-d). VGA
passthrough is more involved and may require you to modify the code to
properly support your specific PCI Express x16 graphics card and
recompile the Xen hypervisor and Xen tools.

Download your copy now! Please note that this is a pre-alpha release.
