Bochs and Bios Canonica VirtIO SCSI Disk Device running Windows 2008 R2

Sameh asked:

I have a Windows 2008 R2 server I can only remote this server so I need to know what type of virtual environment is hosted on,

The Bio Manufacturer shows Bochs and hard disk shows: Canonica VirtIO SCSI Disk Device

Is Bochs a VM? and can host x64 guest?
Many thanks.

My answer:


Those are both telltale signs of a KVM virtual machine. It is almost certainly running on an Ubuntu host, based on the presence of the “Canonical” brand.
