I buyed an E7500-Boxed Processor to use VT-x. At the Intel Page (http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=36503#specs) is the boxed CPU-Version a SLGTE, but my boxed-Version is a SLB9Z with Ordering-Number BX80571E7500, which should support VT. I ask the Intel-Support what to do????
The only thing you can do is take the CPU back and get them to give you teh other SL number, if the won't get a refund and buy another oe. Intel won't chancge it for you as it is not a faulty product.
