* Note: Not all CPU features can be masked with this combination: Moving a running VM inside heterogeneous pools is not supported (including Live Migration and resuming a suspended VM on a different host to where the VM was started)

^ Note: High MMIO must be disabled in BIOS or the platform must always allocate high MMIO below 44 bits

~ Note: The CPU masking restriction was incorrectly missing from this combination and has been retroactively applied
