    Intel Xeon X5690 Virtualization Technology: No ?

    Nam Viet



      I'm getting a very headache issue and need your help:

      My Dell Precision T7500 equipped with Processors: Intel Xeon X5690

      Spec: Intel® Xeon® Processor X5690 (12M Cache, 3.46 GHz, 6.40 GT/s Intel® QPI)

      It is expected to support Virtualization Technology.


      1) From Dell BIOS latest version A13, I have configured to enable VT-x (image bellow).

      OS: Windows Server 2008 R2 64 bit


      2) However when running the Intel Processor Identification Utility, the result shown:

      Intel Virtualization Technology: No

      Intel VT-x with Extended Page Table: No


      3) Tested with SecurAble showing the same result:

      Hardware Virtualization: No

      (Note that if hardware virtualization is capable but BIOS disable the function, then this result will be Loocked-off instead of No).


      4) Cannot run VirtualBox Virtual Machines:

      VT-x is not available.


      5) I have contact Dell and they send me DSET 2.1 (collect system information)

      Result of this application saying the reverse result: VT Capable: Yes, Enable: Yes


      So it's very difficult for me to explain Dell that VT-x is not function as expected.

      As this error present, I cannot run VirtualBox, with VMware and Hyper-V: the 3D Graphic Driver cannot be installed.

      Please help to to fix this error.


      Thank you.
