Hi All,

I recently installed a windows 2003 server HVM guest on a dual core AMD host. However, the windows guest only sees one CPU even though I specified VCPUS =
"2" in the guest config file.

In the device manager in the windows guest, under the computer device it has
"standard PC". This must be the cause of the problem, the standard PC is a uni processor kernel. Is it safe to change this to a multi processor ACPI kernel or
any other multiprocessor kernel?

Thanks in advance,
