    Is there a test or utility to test a computer if it is fully VT-d enabled? Short of installing ESXi itself.

    Thanks.

    Thanks for the link. It is easy to find if a CPU has VT-d by visiting ark.intel.com. For motherboards it is tricky to find out. And even if there is an option in the BIOS to enable/disable VT-d, it may still not work or at least properly. At least that is what my impression is.

    So that is why I was wondering if there is a software based test, like there are to stress test CPUs and memory, which would test the system for complete compatibility.

    Thanks.
