I want to do the same. Can you please explain what the '1:edx=xxx1xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx” means and where do we get the meaning of the “xxxx”

Thank You, Rob - I read all the posts in this list and the one relevant post didn't quite provide enough information, and it's not clear where to find this in the documentation in order to decode it and apply it to my situation (8 sockets = 32 processors).

I found the solution to this problem, in my hvm windows config file I added:
Which makes the 8 CPUs appear to the guest os as a single 8 core
rather than 8 separate cpus, as windows is limited to 2 sockets it now
sees all 8 cores in task manager.

I am trying to figure out how to set the number of CPUs per socket in my
VMs.  My install of Win2003Server Enterprise should support at least 16
CPUs, but it sees only 8.  I was told this is because by default, Xen 3
gives the guest OS vcpus at 1 per socket and W2k3E supports "8 sockets."
How can I set Xen to give more than one CPU per socket?  I have 32 CPUs
available (8 quad-core opterons).
See the thread titled "Windows and Multiple CPUS?", which was started
on the 19th of September:
