Hello, i bought a GIGABYTE GA-M57SLI-S4 motherboard after hearing LinuxBios works on it.
I have not yet installed it, at the moment i am using the proprietary Award bios version F8 2007/03/20 .
I wanted to use
AMD-V with kvm or xen, unfortunately the bios has disabled it and there is no option in the bios to enable it.
I found on a thread that before G stepping support disabling amd-v was difficult and therefore bios companies left it enabled.
On a xen forum somebody had a
Gigabyte M61P-S3 and had the same problem , they downgraded to a bios that did not have G stepping support and amd-v was enabled, of course they lost powernow and other features.
I am asking if anyone knows if the latest bios version F9 or some way to enable amd-v on the bios, of course i am willing to use linuxBios , but i would like to wait for a few releases so all bugs are cleared and acpi is enabled.
I have amd64 x2 5200+ on the board...
