My System Specs


Are any cores disabled in BIOS? Try clearing the CMOS and try again.

What does a Linux Live CD tell you? You can get the number of cores in any Linux by typing
cat /proc/cpuinfo
into a terminal. I'm not quite sure whether it will list real cores or HT cores, but anyway if it lists 6 or 12 you're good.
