Secondly, if need be you will have to upgrade the processor core VRMs. The third step is to upgrade the system BIOS and BMC firmware. The next step after up grading the BIOS and BMC firmware involves upgrading the operating system to add support for multi-core processors. Lastly, install the new processors.
Requirements supported for the upgrade processor and core The requirements supported for the upgrade are one; compatibility test must clearly justify that the operating system supports the processor and core being up graded. Also, the hardware part must be in line to support the upgrade. Other components will also be upgraded to balance the process i.e. VRMs, BIOS and the BMC firmware.
The null hypothesis
HO: As a result of the upgrading the multi- processor, multi-core Operating system, there will either be no significant difference in supporting distributed / virtual environment or there will be a significant increase. The null hypothesis is true.

Scheduling Algorithms The environment I am currently using is a non-virtual environment. It is a laptop Compaq brand, 3.1GHz, 3 GB DDR and 300 GB HDD. It has one operating system installed i.e. Windows XP. The operating system is the single-processor and single-core Operating System. This operating system supports a single-core processor. The single-core processor has only one execution core i.e. it
