I was able to get the Pulse Application to see all 8 Processors inside my Virtual Machine:
I had trouble when I would increase the vCPUs after the BeOS Operating System was installed. This is what Pulse looks like when I set the vCPU during the install and then changed it to 4 vCPUs later:
I then tried setting the vCPUs to 8 during the BeOS install and after a reboot, the Pulse looked great:
I even tried setting the vCPUs to 6 during the install, then changed it to 8 vCPUs after reboot:
It was fun playing with the settings, but I am glad I finally have all 8 procs showing up in Pulse!
Has anyone ever tried 12 or 16 vCPUs in a BeOS Virtual Machine?
Oh, if you want to set up your own BeOS 5 as a Virtual Machine inside VMware vSphere 6, here are my directions:
