    Processor and features not recognized in BIOS


      Upgraded processor from an Intel® Core 2 Quad Q6600 to a Intel® Core 2 Quad Q9550, and need to use Virtualization Technology (VT) on this system with a Windows* based OS. The previous processor was working fine with the board, before changing the processors the BIOS was updated to 0517, the latest version. With the new processor, the system boots but the processor is not recognized correctly at the BIOS. It's recognized as "Genuine Intel Processor" and features of the processor as Multiplexing and Virtualization Technology (VT) aren't present. Fan coolers work at the highest speed. Any suggestions?
