While looking for a server to run Xen I stumbled across a barebones setup which comes with an Intel Xeon L5420 on the SuperMicro X7DCA-L motherboard. Doing a bit of research I found the processor supports VT-x but I'm not sure if that guarantees Xen will work. What do I need to look for when shopping for motherboards or hardware in general?
