          Hello Syed_Muneeb,

           

          Let me help you with this.

           

          Based on the processor specifications this processor supports Intel® Virtualization Technology (VT-x)  only. This product can help you with virtual machines if:

          1. The motherboard supports VT-d or VT-x
          2. If the software does not need both VT’s enabled.

           

          In the VMware case, even though I am not a specialist on this product, I can tell you that is necessary to have VT-d and VT-x support enabled to make it work so since the processor is missing VT-x you probably will get error messages when trying to set it up.
