    Hi sebus ,

    Thanks for your answer .

    I have used this tool and Ms Tool ( HAV detection tool ) , but in this case we can see only if VT is available or not .

    I need a tool or a script to check if VT-D is supported and if it is anabled or disabled

    Urie suggest me Everest but I don't find this reference on it

    King regards
    AnyB

    Wouldn't it be easiest to check for this in bios options.

    Sebus ,

    cpu and chipset support VT and VT-d I'm sure !!!

    The bios is phoenix and there isn't any menu' or sub-menu' about VT or VT-d .

    I'm sure that VT is enabled ( I have checked it with previous mentioned tools ) but VT-d is an extencion of VT and I'm not sure that is enabled ( probably Intel required royalty from the brand to enabled it ) .

    Now I'm searching a tool to check if VT-d is enabled or not

    Thanks for your help and your future advice


    Ciao

    VT is CPU virtualization and VT-d is I/O virtualization

    but

    The bios is phoenix and there isn't any menu' or sub-menu' about VT or VT-d .

    If you can state the system details (CPU / Chipset / System model), you can tell whether or not it's even supported on your platform. If you plan on redirecting hardware, then you might as well install the hypervisor you plan to use - it will let you know (e.g. ESX/ESXi 4.0).
