I may have missed this on the thread, but how do you do that?
The Nehalem systems I have came delivered with HT enabled in the BIOS
- I know it is not a real pain to reboot and configure, but it would
be a lot easir to leave it on and switch off in software - also if you
wanted to do back-to-back testing of performance with/without HT.
