Virtualization Technology bios setting
I've got a DS3 (see sig, bottom system) and want to run MS Virtual PC 2007. I ran MS Virtual PC 2004 in the past with success on a machine that did not have any kind of bios switch for virtualization, but the DS3 has that switch in the advanced bios settings for "Virtualization Technology". I had disabled it but then enabled it and installed the the above virtual 2007.
So how exactly does this bios setting affect the virtualization program? I mean, the 2004 version of the program ran fine on my other mobo without this bios feature, so how will this bios feature cause virtualization to run better, or whatever?
BTW, I installed the virtualization program (and previously installed it) to run Win 98se, as there are a couple of programs my son uses that actually run better on 98se than XP, and ran quite well under the MS Virtual PC 2004. So I'm hoping they will do the same on the 2007 version.
