Yeah... I believe so till now. If this is true why my virt-manager behaving like this. PFA some screen shots of virt-manager, both virt types para and fully are disabled. and it stops me from creating a VM.

For paravirtualized guests I don't think you need the hardware virtualization assist (VMX). You only need vmx when you want to create HVM guests.

No i just need to enable virtualization flag on my intel xeon quad core processor, so that i can create paravirt VMs in my set-up. Which at this time virt-manager is not allowing me to do.

Any plans for 'nested' VMX support? KVM seems to have that..
