Xen virtualization with Intel-VT

Posted on Fri 04 September 2009 in Linux • 1 min read


for a training i needed some pcs with a virtualization technology preferably from Intel (VT). The easiest way is to buy some pc components and to build thereof a pc. After my last selfmade pc i'm a little bit impaired on that score. So i needed a pre-build pc with a intel cpu, gigabit lan and if it possible: small-sized. So is started my research with my best friend google ;)

After a while i found the transtec SENYO 610.

In the small configuration they have a

inside. But according to the Intel website both cpus didn't support the Intel VT :( So i needed the big one and they have the following configuration

  • C2D T8300 / C2D T9500
  • 1 GB DDR2 RAM (up to 4GB RAM)
  • 160GB 5400rpm (up to 500GB)
  • Gigalan, Bluetooth, Wlan

So i order the big one with a C2D T8300, 4GB Ram and a 160GB (7200rpm) harddisk. Now i'm waiting for the postman :D
