Stupid Bloody Intel S5000XVN BIOS!!

Wasted 4hrs this morning dealing with this issue… All I needed to do was to power cycle the machine (turn completely off, then back on again). I updated the bios on this motherboard; Intel S5000XVN, yesterday and needed to enable the Intel Virtualization Technology (VT). I did this, however in order for this setting to take affect you need to power cycle.

This machine has virtual machines on it hosted by VMWare Server. When it came to starting the 64bit guest linux machines, VMware Server would say I needed to enable VT. IT IS ENABLED!!! Very frustrating…

Intel USB 3.0 Candid Message to the Masses

Could anyone invest the necessary time and money to create such a host controller specification? Of course they could…

It’s refreshing to read official messages and comments like the one Nick from Intel just posted, USB 3.0 for the masses – Dispelling the myths.

These major companies, like Intel, are run by human beings you know. It’s just that somewhere along the line it was decided that you had to be all Official and say everything proper because if you didn’t then you’d be in trouble/put people off. What a load of shit….

Good work Nick :)
