Specs: Server 2008 RC2 SP1
We have a Dell T410. We have 2 - 6 core processors. In device manager and when we go to a process to set processory affinity it only shows 0-7 processors. Why is it not showing 0-11 processors?

We are running dual six core X5650 2.67 ghz processors.

✔ Best Answer
I'd be inclined to talk to Dell support regarding this issue.

Edit: But before you do that you might want to check that all cores are enabled in the processor section of the setup screens.

Are you referring to the processor section in BIOS or somwhere in WIndows?
