I'm playing around with the debug functions of the x86 processor and specifically trying to work with debugCtl functionality (http://support.amd.com/us/Processor_TechDocs/24593_APM_v2.pdf, page 353).
I tried to activate this feature by writing (in kernel mode) 1 to the msr number 1d9 but when reading the value back I get a 0.
after a few hours of debugging my code I tried it on my physical computer and it worked.
I wanted to know whether I need to change the configuration to enable this feature or its not supported, and if it's supported in another in another vmware product.
Try to hideit's vm status.
