Dual 4-core processor - only one shows up in Vista Home Premium
I bought Windows Home Premium. I have a dual processor workstation. Each
processor is quad-core XEON 5355. Only one got installed, so my task manager
only shows 4 cores, and DxDiag only shows one processor.

In XP Pro I see all 8 cores. Did I get the wrong version of Vista?

True
Home versions of Vista do not support Dual Processors

From Page.
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/pro...uirements.mspx

"While all editions of Windows Vista can support multiple core CPUs, only
Windows Vista Business, Ultimate, and Enterprise can support dual
processors"
