So its not running SMP either?
Well I started the smp console last night and at first I got all trypes of erros then I figured for some damn reason the files were not being written so I ran it as admin and it started running. I woke up this morning and the system had rebooted.
So I restarted it 30 minutes ago and it's still at 0%
****EDIT: Woot 1%
Looks like this thing isn't going to get even 1 wu in for the foldathon.
But my main system made it all night on gpu without a ps failure. I just started vm on it and am typeing on it now so I may have the power under control now. I stocked everything out and had to raise the vcore on cpu (guess the ps's are soo unstable it's vdropping below the cpu threashhold.

3800X2 lapped (I don't know the stepping). On a Asrock dualSataII

Which rig are you trying to get vmware set up on? Hardware components? OS? ect
THX Br0, That is what I thought. I was under the impresion it would just emulate. But on the intels it was required to enable as disabled on an intel would actually stop the process. I could be wrong as
i'm no VM guru. Hardware ^^ I can add another gig but it will be in single mode (won't hurt f@h though). I tried installing sun vm (failed on install with no specific error :I hate generic failed errors!) And was unable to dnload MS VM cause machine is on win7 beta and expired or some such bull.
So I'm thinking back to XP32SP3 and give it a go. I just wanted to get this folding for the foldathon and tweak afterwards.

I'm a real nubb on linux but if there is a decent how to I'll set that up and dual boot. Linux boot loader still Lilo? I haven't used it since like 96.
I originally thought it was a Win7 (OS) problem. Which I still do, IMO the vmware should error on not supported if that is the issue, But of course it could be erroring before it gets to the check but I can run vmware it just errors when I try to run a vmx file.
