Hyper-V Program Manager
Unfortunately under Virtual Server 2005 R2 SP1 Beta 2 it is not very easy to tell whether your physical computer really supports hardware virtualization, and whether Virtual Server is actually using it. So - to help out - I am here to tell you the painful and annoying way to determine this information:
If this is reporting 0 – then Virtual Server is not able to use hardware virtualization on your computer. If this is reporting 1 – then Virtual Server is able to use hardware virtualization on your computer. If you believe that your system should support hardware virtualization, but PerfMon is reporting otherwise some things to check are:
Note – that on most computers the ‘Virtual Processors’ performance object will not appear the first time that you try to add a counter under Perfmon. If you try to add a counter and do not see this option – just close the ‘Add counters’ dialog and try to add a counter again – it should appear the second time.
