    jaouadINTEL

      Hi every one my name is Allali

      actually am focus on Virtualisation technologie

      So I saw a sony vaio with double core Processor T7250 the CPU belong to VT-X list link to this url below

      http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=31728

      when am accessing the Bios configuration, there is no options relited to VT like weather or not enable VT-x capabilitie

      So What am asking is if I install an ESX 4.0 inside vmware workstation as VM, it will be installed successfully ???????? even the bios doesn't mention no thing about it

      if yes Please tell me how to proceed

          Hi jaouadINTEL,

           

          Yes, you are correct that the Intel(r) T7250 processor does support VT-x.  However, the chipset, processor and BIOS all need to support VT in order for everything to work correctly.  Generally there is an option made available in the BIOS settings that allows a user to enable or disable VT.  If that option is not there it is possible that either the chipset or BIOS doesn't support VT.  I'd suggest contacting Sony and finding out if your particular model is capable of supporting VT or if there is an update you can install that will enable VT support.

           

          For installation questions regarding ESX 4.0 and VMWare, you'll need to contact VMWare directly.

           

          Hope this helps!
