Are you able to test a Windows 2003 server with 16 cores?

Microsoft made some changes to the way processors are reported under
2008 and I suspect that I'm not doing something right there, but I need
to know if it affects 2003 as well - it's easier for me to test 2003 if
the problem is there.


I tested with windows 2003 R2, same problem. Maximum i can get work with 8 cores.


Have a nice day!
