Are you sure the kvm_intel & kvm modules are loaded?


Maybe you're bios does not support virtualization.

Configured in the bios on Dell 745.

Please check your dmesg.

I'll double-check dmesg when I get to the office tomorrow. But I'm
pretty sure it's loaded successfully on the Dell Optiplex 745. On my
IBM X60s notebook, it failed to load.

It's a dynamic misc device, you don't need to create it.

But it'll be nice to be able to manually create the device as I
normally mount "/" as read-only?
