    Should chipset  also support Virtualization (VT-d), along with Processor.

    977388
      Dear All,

      I want my guest OS to access my hard drives and USBs.

      Is it possible through Intel® Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O (VT-d)

      I have Dell 14z ultrabook - http://www.dell.com/in/p/inspiron-14z-5423/pd

      and my friend has also Dell 15R - http://www.dell.com/in/p/inspiron-15r-se-7520/pd

      VTx is being supported in above two models, as i am able to run my guest OS.

      Intel shows Vt-d feature support for these models i5-3317U and i5-3210M .

      I am not sure, if chipset has also to support along with these processors.

      I am still not able to access peripherals through my guest OS.

      Any clarification would be of great help.

      Thanks.
