Well, seeing the question was closed as "off-topic" without comment, I reposted on SU: superuser.com/questions/422601/…

Oh, I see the question has already attracted 3 close votes. Should I move it to superuser.com?

@ceejayoz: Yes, I realize this may be borderline off-topic. Still, it is a networking question - and runningamajortelecom.stackexchange.com is still in private beta ;-).

comment Are there any good reasons for disabling hardware-assisted virtualization?
-1 The question is not about systems where HV is completely unavailable in the BIOS. It's about why it is shipped disabled, even though it's available.

comment Is there any any merit to routinely restore a linux system, even if unnecessary?
Yes, and additionally, returning to a base snapshot will may also wipe data that is still needed, such as logfiles, temporary files or result data. You could store this on a different partitions, but it still means extra work (and risk).

comment sync time on linux using ntp and persist it
Good point. Note that problems with the clock battery will only affect the RTC / hardware clock. The system clock used by the OS is maintained independently.

@JannePikkarainen: True, ntpdate does no good if there's no network connection, but hwclock does. You need to use hwclock if you want the correct time right after booting.

ntpd alone will not help maintaining the time across reboots (it will only correct the time some seconds(?) after a reboot, and will not work if there's no net connection).
