I have an ASUS P6T with Windows on it, tried installing xen-unstable and kvm
from source - :(

Parallels Workstation Extreme now support VT-d for Windows ... (I think)


Also > see my post on ASUS forum: 


Please BUMP if you view ;)

Dustin, you still thinking of contacting ASUS ?

        It's not my board or issue, so I don't have anything to contact ASUS 
with.  I was just suggesting that if someone who could show the issue to ASUS 
and present it as a specifications issue (or an issue that somehow affected 
Windows), then getting it fixed would make another board available for users of 
the Xen community.  It would have to be someone with plenty of motivation, 
though, because they'd need to prove the specification issue or find a way that 
it caused a problem in Windows, and then they'd have to argue until they got 
escalated to engineering, and even then, nothing may ever come of that.  I 
managed to get escalated to ASUS engineering once and never heard back, so 
personally, I don't plan to buy any more ASUS boards.  Unfortunately, I've seen 
poor quality MSI BIOSes too, and I couldn't even get escalated to their 
engineering, so of what I consider to be the big three, that leaves Gigabyte, 
who didn't even intend to support VT last I heard.  For Xen stuff, though, 
Supermicro is probably the way to go, because who needs a feature-laden 
not-so-Linux-ready consumer market board for Xen anyway?
