is there a virtual machine that supports more then 8 cores?
 
well since my main PC is going to be down for a while until I can figure out what is going on, I have been using my Folding box, I just unplugged the small hard drive that has all of the folding under linux and then attached all of my other harddrives one of which has windows 7 it can see both sockets but when I loaded up vmware it will not allow anything more the 8 cores which really sucks. Is there any virtual software out there that would let me be able to use both sockets and all of the cores?

Wmware Work Station allow 8 processors X 8 cores per processors = 64 processors core....

Vmware workstation that I have shows this option but it fails to load because it says a virtual machine cannot run more then 8 cpus this 0ne has 16, I have it set for two processors 8cores each.

Virtualbox. I'm using it with my i7 970 (6c/12t) and it works very well.

Or VMWare Player 3.0.0 - and only that one. It will allow more than 8 cores.
