    How to test a mainboard and BIOS about Intel VT

    AndyWern

      Hi

       

      I bought a Lenovo TS150 70LV003KEA

       

      http://psref.lenovo.com/Detail/ThinkServer_TS150?M=70LV003KEA

       

      with Xeon E3-1225 v5.

       

      The mainbaord has a chipset C236 from Intel and seems to be manufactured by Micro Star International (MSI). BIOS seems to be from AMI.

       

      How to thoroughly know and test if not only the Xeon E3-1225 v5 but also board and BIOS really and fully support VT-x and VT-d? All kind of Intel Virtualization Technologies?

       

      Is there a test suite from Intel somewhere available? What does Intel recommend?

       

      There is no information available from Lenovo about VT-x and VT-d for Lenovo TS150 70LV003KEA. Nothing mentionned in specs etc. Support doesn't know.

       

      The BIOS has no entries to enable/disable VT-x and VT-d.

       

      Please provide a solution for testing all available Intel Virtualization Technologies on systems.

       

      Thanks.

      Appendix:

       

      Sorry I am wrong.

       

      BIOS has under CPU Setup entries for Intel VT and VT-d.

       

      But it would be a favour to have a test for all these VT capabilities.

       

      Thanks.
