Odd issue with vmx

So to explain the situation, what's happening is vmx works fine on the first four logical cores of the CPU without issue. Launch succeeds, they receive exits, vmresume is executed, all's good. However on cores 5,6,7, and 8 ( indices 4 to 7 ) vmlaunch succeeds but entry fails with "invalid first state" and immediately exits with that exit reason INVALID_GUEST_STATE (33) thus causing vmresume to fail. I ran all of the entry checks on said core and none of them come back as incorrect. Does anybody know what could be causing this issue? Thanks in advance.

NFV topics at the Intel® Developer Forum, the DPDK and Network Builders Summit

The Intel® Developer Forum 2015 took place August 18–20 in San Francisco. Intel® also sponsored a day-long Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK) and Network Builders Summit on August 17, 2015. There were several interesting sessions at the conference relating to Network Functions Virtualization (NFV). In this blog post, we look at some of the highlights and share pointers to session slides or presentations.

Probably data corruption


Executive summary.

Stability issue (probably) related to data corruption. (App and services hang)

Apps suddenly disappears and still missing after factory reset.

Tablet stops booting after few days of normal usage. (stuck with Intel logo right after Android boot animation)

Re-flash always fixes every issue until next instability.

We think there is a data corruption problem behind every issue, possibly caused by BIOS or eMMC Firmware bug or Kernel bug.

Technical information

Tablets' specs are:

Intel HAXM 1.1.1 Generating CPU Parity Errors?


I just installed Android Studio and Intel HAXM 1.1.1 two days ago to start learning Android development. Since then, I've been seeing WHEA-Logger events in my Windows System Log every time I have HAXM actively running an emulated Android device. Is this a bug? Known error? Uncharted waters never seen before...?

How to Set Up Intel® Media Server Studio with VT-d Virtualization

Intel® Graphics Virtualization Technology (Intel® GVT) is an extension of Intel® Virtualization Technology (Intel® VT) for Directed I/O (Intel® VT-d) that provides hardware accelerated I/O virtualization support for Intel® HD graphics - it is one of the GPU virtualization solutions. Intel GVT allows the Virtual Machine (VM) to call a GPU function via I/O. Only one VM can use the GPU at a given time, while other VMs can perform any work that does not require the GPU. For information on enabling all the VMs to access the GPU, see Intel GVT and KVMGT. Terminology Host: The actual machine on which the virtualization takes place. Install the Intel Media Server Studio R6 generic package on this system. VM: Virtual Machine is an emulation of a particular computer system. Install the Intel Media Server Studio R6 gold configuration on this system. Remote OS: The OS for accessing the host and VM from a remote system The following steps will provide the methodology to enable Intel® Media Server Studio R6 on an Intel VT-d environment. This includes the Host and VM installation, and verification of the installation.
