[Xen-users] Xen Guest - multi CORE cpu vs multi cpus

Im running 64bit centos 5.6 and using virt-manager.

On one of my guest OS's, Windows 7, The max Physical CPUs is 2, you can have
unlimited CPU Cores however. (like my machine i use for work has 1, 4 core

The issue im having is xen only allows you to set the vcpu arguemnet in your
xen config file. How can i set it so that 1 CPU has several Cores just as
windows would recognize this machine if i were installing directly to the
hardware vs via a VM.

Ive searched for 2 days staright trying to address this issue, very little
progress, here are a few links of info i found but did not help.

Does anyone know where a XEN support forum is? all i get is the citrix xen
support forums.

here is the best info i have found on this, but i dont know how to change
this for my CPU to work, when i enter this in my xen config it essentially
ignores it and just takes the value of vcpu=
