64-bit Windows 8 has Hyper-V (virtualization) built-in.
Hyper-V only works if the host machine is equipped with a 64-bit processor that supports a feature called Second Level Address Translation (SLAT). [SLAT may also be known as extended page tables (EPT), Rapid Virtualization Indexing (RVI) and nested page tables (NPT)].
Does the "Dell XPS One 27 Touch" PC with i7 processor released in Q4 2012 support SLAT so that you can use the Hyper-V feature built-in to Windows 8?
** Note: I should have mentioned that I do not have this system and can't personally check it.
The processor in question does support SLAT/EPT because it has the i7-3700S processor. Still concerned about the potential BIOS/Setup dependency though at the overall system level.
When looking through the owners manual for this machine I do NOT see a specific setting to enable SLAT/EPT (unless it is named yet again something else in the Dell setup screen). So I was hoping someone who has the machine could confirm Hyper-V actually works.
