Just to note, I was going to get an Ultra 20 M2 but the lead time of delivery was too long. So I put together a quick Athlon X2 (Windsor) with a Gigabyte NForce 590SLI motherboard.

I did a quick test with Xenoppix [1] (Knoppix and Xen) and HVM worked like charm. This runs Knoppix in a HVM domain.

I'll be doing some further testing with Windows once I've installed everything.

Note its important that if you get an Athlon that you check the model. Only the Windsor (dual core) and Orleans (not dual core) do AMD-V. It can be very confusing with the AMD ratings and the GHz ratings.
