    S5000VSA:  Enabling 2 out of 4 Cores, Installing Windows 7, and Supporting NVIDIA Video Cards




      I have 3 questions.  Consider the following system.


           server motherboard:  S5000VSA

           processor:  L5520


      The documentation says that the BIOS on the S5000VSA can enable or disable multi-core support.

      That, to me, means enabling only 1 core or enabling all 4 cores in the L5520.


      1.  Is there a way to enable, say, only 2 cores?


      2.  Also, can Windows 7 Professional (64-bit) be installed on the aforementioned system?


      3.  Will the board support high-performance graphics cards like the ones from NVIDIA?
