You have installed OracleVM Server on your hardware and you would like to check whether the configuration will support fully virtualized guest installations (domains). The term "Full Virtualization" is synonymous with "Hardware virtualized machine". From Oracle® VM Server User's Guide - Glossary:
A virtual machine with an unmodified guest operating system. It is not recompiled for the virtual environment. There may be substantial performance penalties running as a hardware virtualized guest.
