Li3910 virtualization (IVT) BIOS support?

Postby gniemcew » Fri Oct 30, 2009 2:43 pm

Hi,

I am about to buy Amilo Li3910 (Li 3910) and even though "full" Windows 7 support is indeed mentioned on the Fujitsu site, there is no explicit mention of Intel Virtualization Technology (IVT) support in Li3910 BIOS (necessary for Windows 7 XP-Mode functionality).

Can someone with the latest Li3910 BIOS please have a look whether the BIOS includes na option to enable IVT? Or, perhaps, knows 100% that Windows 7 XP-Mode actually does work for Li3910 by default (IVT always active)?

Thanks...

Well, finally, competent Fujitsu tech support pointed out that Li3910 is built around the older Pentium Dual Core, thus cannot support IVT, virtualization, on the processor level (regardless of BIOS). Dumb of me, I was sure it was the newer Core 2 Duo all along :). So, to summarize, forget about Windows 7 XP-Mode support for Li3910.
