K8N-DL with Dual Opteron 270's 2.01 GHz Dual Core - Virtualization

I have a K8N-DL with Dual Opteron on 270's 2.01 GHz Dual Core and I wanted to install 2008 Server with Hyper V. How can I tell if this server can support virtualization?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The Opteron 270 doesn't support hardware virtualisation. A list of CPU features can be found here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_AMD_Opteron_microprocessors#Opteron_200-series_.22Italy.22_.28E6.2C_90_nm.29

Unfortunately, none of the socket 940 CPU's support virtualisation. So this will have to be a CPU / Mobo upgrade if you want to run Hyper-V
