Virtual Server 2005 on 64bit and Opteron Dual Core

    I've just read an article at redmondmag.com that says that once Virtual
    Server 2005 runs on 64bit Windows (it's in beta now, apparently) although it
    will run on AMD Opteron Dual Core CPUs it will not "recognize or use the
    second processor core". I'm trying to understand this. If Windows is willing
    to use both cores, why would one of its client threads (in this case, Virtual
    Server) not be able to run on the "second core"?

    Does anyone out there understand this? Perhaps the mag article is wrong.

  2. I certainly don't understand it but is it possible that this will be a
    temporary thing and the second core will be recognized in later releases?

    Just guessing.......
