    Anyone can make some magic with that bios to allow directed i/o (Aka: vt-d)? There's already an option to enable virtualization but it's only for vt-x. Not vt-d.

    AwardBios v6.00PG
    Asus P5N-D ACPI Bios revision 1401

    Thanks

    Do you really think, a Socket775 CPU has VT-d?
    It's a new feature introduced with newer CPUs.

    Edit, ok, was wrong: last Generation of Socket775 CPUs (Q9650 for example) had VT-d.
    But i doubt, that old NVidia i750 chipset supports it. Haven't found anything about it.
    Found only infos about Intel Q45 Chipset for Socket775 that supports VT-d.

    Yeah, I've been googling for the last week to find anything about it but nowhere is it mentionned if the chipset support it or not.

    That sucks. I guess I'll have to change it.

    Thanks for the reply though.
