F11beta legacy bios still has amd-v disbled, according to xenoppix, which boots, however --Q
Can't XEN just turn it on? AFAIK you can't lock the AMD-V bits forever, while on Intel-V the BIOS sets a lock bit and only the BIOS can turn it back on.
Usually, if virtualization is disabled, XEN will just try to enable it and print a message if that worked or failed.
