    As you can see SVM is required:

    http://kvm.qumranet.com/kvmwiki/Status
    I think my CPU supports SVM, it's just that either: (a) I haven't enabled SVM in my BIOS or (b)I haven't ompiled a kernel which includes support for SVM or (c) maybe I need to do both. My questions, therefore, are: (1) what should I look for and where in my BIOS to enable SVM, and (2) where in the kernel do I enable SVM?

    Here are my CPU specifications:

    Re: kvm problems.

    And my AMD processor is an Opteron 175 2200 MHz 2×1024 KiB 1000 MHz 11x1.35/1.3V 110W Socket 939 OSA175DAA6CD "Denmark" (90 nm)

    I am running 32bit Gutsy now. Before I was running 32 bit Fiesty.

    Re: kvm problems.

    in the kvm official documentation, this question is answered: How can I tell if I have Intel VT or AMD-V? http://kvm.qumranet.com/kvmwiki/FAQ#...af2ecf25b9db60

    The answer is input this command:
    Code:
    egrep '^flags.*(vmx|svm)' /proc/cpuinfo
    The outup on my end is:
    Code:
    drone4four@ubuntu:/usr/src/kvm-61/kernel$ egrep '^flags.*(vmx|svm)' /proc/cpuinfo
    drone4four@ubuntu:/usr/src/kvm-61/kernel$
    I think this means I can't use kvm. Although, what if I changed some settings in my BIOS? Then would that command produce different results?

    Maybe I could try this guide here: http://lifehacker.com/367714/run-win...y-inside-linux
