Thread-topic: HVM Loader Doesn't See the "vcpus" .hvm Parameter?
Every time "hvmloader" comes up to load a VM, it shows  cpu=1 as detected, no matter what number you give in .hvm configuration file. I have vcpus=2 and cpus = "2-4" in my .hvm file!
Any idea why is this?  Or Am I missing anything?
I am guessing due to this I am not able to run the un-modified "Multiprocessor" Windows.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks R
These are the details of my configuration
I am having a server with 2 dual core XEON with VT-x enabled on it.
