    What are you talking about?

    Detection of what, within what?

    Do you mean bypass SLAT detection for use in Hyper-V? AFAIK, no, but if you install Windows Server 2012 instead of Windows 8, Server lets you use Hyper-V without SLAT at all unlike W8.

    I would guess that it depends on the program. There are probably many ways a program could figure out it is in a virtualized machine. Existence of synthetic drivers; asking the CPU to do something that can't be done except on real hardware; etc.

    Tell us your specific programs that are having this trouble, maybe someone has an idea.

    The biggest issue with Hyper-V (on Windows 8, that is) is the requirement for SLAT - while newer i-series CPUs (in fact, anything from first-generation up - the only exceptions I'm even aware of are CeleronG and PentiumG, and I'm not sure there) support SLAT, their older three-digit-LGA-socketed ancestors don't. (In short, LGA1366/1156/1155 are fine, but LGA775 and older are not.) Said issue is further compounded by the issue not affecting Windows Server - at all. (My desktop is currently built around the Intel Q6600 - an LGA775 CPU. It supports the Intel64 architecture, hence it can run Windows Server just fine; remember, Windows Server hasn't supported x32 since Server 2003. An optional feature of all versions of Windows Server (except Home Server) is Hyper-V - Hyper-V in Server 2012 is exactly identical to that of Windows 8; in fact, Server 2012 was called Windows 8 Server. There IS one major advantage with Server 2012 as an OS compared to Windows 8 (if you want/need virtualization support) - no SLAT requirement.) Fortunately, Windows Server requires no more hard drive space than does *desktop* Windows - my Server 2012 drive is an old 80GB WD SATA HDD. (Naturally, I don't park virtual machines and VHDs there - I use my far-larger Windows 8 HDD for this - and yes, you certainly can do this; the other reason is so when I finally DO move to SLAT-compliant hardware, I simply point Windows 8's Hyper-V Manager at the VMs it's been hosting, but been unable to use itself, and import away.)
