I found Intel has Pentium D 950..... is that compatible and HAV capable? I read the specs on it, but must admit it was a bit over my head!!! delluser1 January 6, 2010 7:09:47 AM Yes. Intel Virtualization Technology = HAV capable. JohnRocks January 6, 2010 8:16:58 AM Yes you can, but I think it would be cost consuming. melisa4765 January 6, 2010 2:19:13 PM delluser1 said:Yes. Intel Virtualization Technology = HAV capable. AGAIN... Thank you very much for helping me. I made the decision to not pursue this. I'm better off just buying a new desktop and this time I will make sure it is HAV capable. Take Care! delluser1 January 6, 2010 2:22:36 PM You're welcome. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
