    Intel Core 2 Duo Hardware Virtualization Locked OFF

    abaniranjan

      Hi! ALL.

       

      I recently thought of upgrading to a 64 bit OS. My processor does support 64 bit OS.

      Here's the Spec. Intel Core2Duo E7400 2.80GHz.

      I have the latest BIOS(i.e., 0601) updated from ASUS Website (Since I have a ASUS P5KPL-AM(PS)Motherboard)

      Problem is. I wish to test the 64 bit OS before I install it.

      I wish to have a dual bit of MS Windows XP SP3 X86 and MS Windows 7 SP1 Ultimate X64.

      Everytime I try to test the 64 bit os with VIrtual Box/VmWare. It fails.

      Googled info on this topic. Found out a software tool Securable can shed some light on it.

      Looks like Hardware Virtualization is Locked OFF.

      From what I read on the internet. THe Hardware Virtualization technology can be unlocked with a BIOS or there may be a setting within BIOS to unlock it.

      Checked the security tab within BIOS to look for something that may relate to VT. But, Nothing there.

      I need to know if Intel can provide a custom BIOS for the same which enables the VT or is there anything else i can do about it?
