Hi Mike,

I haven't checked the CPUs but please don't make the mistake I made and 
use a motherboard that only has very limited support for VTd.  

As far as I could work out (from lots of help on the forum) my 
problems were all down to the North Bridge chip set used by Intel on my 
motherboard and it only supporting one VTd instance - something like 
that.  Anyway, the motherboard was about as much use as a poke in the 
eye for HVM use, even though VTd support was stated in the documentation.

Best regards,
