Re: dual core processor
Check your BIOS. Hyperthreading is software transparent as it's a hardware feature. Even software that "doesn't support it" will see multiple threads as long is the OS is SMP enabled. I know this because Windows 2000 Pro apparently didn't support Hyperthreading but it still saw (and used) the two threads. It even showed so in the Task Manager.
