I had a VM with two cores. I powered it down and changed the settings to four cores.
Here's what I see:
- System (right-click on My Computer > Properties) reports "(2 processors)"
- Task Manager shows two CPU core graphs
- Device manager shows four CPUs under Processors
- VMWare reports four CPUs
It seems strange. Am I missing some step to get Windows to use the remaining two CPUs?
I'm running Windows 7 SP1 x64.
