+1 for portable suggestion, however this sometimes is infeasible.

Your method doesn't work.

@Mike Chess: Maybe you should help solve the issue instead of projecting your conjectures. It's entirely possible to have this issue on a personal or test system that you have the right to modify.

This should be reopened as a real question. The correct answer is identified and accepted.

comment Strange cpuinfo, how many cores does these physical cpu has?
Yep this would do it. 2 CPUs, 4 cores each. Hyperthreading makes it as if each core counts as two, so 2 * 4 * 2 = 16 processors.

comment Why is Hardware Assisted Virtualization disabled by default?
Considering this wasn't a comparison of software virtualization vs hardware virtualization I don't see the point of your comment. I simply meant that utilizing more hardware features requires more cycles -> more power.

comment How can I make it difficult to install a new operating system on a certain computer?
My thoughts I want to host a website on a desktop computer running Ubuntu with a Windows virtual machine. Fantastic! I will give away the computer in exchange for a number of months of remote web hosting. So you have the webserver but want to give it away? I want to add some kind of lock (hardware or otherwise) so that the end users will have difficulty just reinstalling Windows and using the machine as they want, in contradiction to the contract. You're making this a lot harder than it needs to be.. why not just keep the computer??
