Diff between HVM and PVM machines.

I just wanted to know the difference between Hardware virtualised machine and Paravirtual machines.

Is Paravirtual machines= Hardware Virtualised machines+ para virtual drivers.

PVM - Parallel Virtual machine - Doesn't use the VT-x/AMD-V features, and predominately uses the kernel for virtualisation. (
