    Virtualization on Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor E7400




      Last week I bought a PC which has Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor E7400 (3M Cache, 2.80 GHz, 1066 MHz FSB).


      This processor has following information printed on its box:

      Freq: 2.80 GHz

      Core: 45nm

      FSB: 1066 MHz

      Socket: LGA775

      L2 Cache: 3MB

      PCG: 06

      Prod Code: BX80571E7400

      S-spec: SLB9Y

      MM #: 900516

      FPO/Batch #: 3849A455


      Ver#: E53246-001

      Pack date: 02/26/09


      My initial idea was to play with Intel virtualization technology. For the some purpose I bought this processor few days back.

      But I installed Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 on my machine and tried to run my system, then my PC got rebooted i.e. It was not able to run Virtual PC on the system.


      Later I tried to find the reason for this and find out that this program requires Virtualization support on processor and unfortunately the processor which does not have this , so I am not able to run virtual machines on my computer.


      Manier of the vendor sites are showing that this processor supports virtualization, so I bought this.


      So is there any way I can run Virtual machine on this processor? If not then it seems that all my money gone waste.
