I just put into production a new low-power (65-105W) 1/2U server I built 
using the SuperMicro X7SBA:


and a 45nm Core2Duo.  Centos 5.2 Dom0, DomU is Fedora 8 (for the 
moment).  I haven't tried any of the Hyper-V stuff yet, but it's 
supported in the BIOS and detected by Xen.

The latest BIOS update is essential for proper disk geometry detection.
