ASUS M5A78L-MLX Hardware Virtualization

Hey guys, I would like to know if it is possible to enable hardware virtualization on the ASUS M5A78L-MLX Motherboard ( says that on my bios screen ).

The reason I would like to know is because I have a program called VMware, which lets you run any operating system on your computer, so I tried running Mac OSX Mountain Lion, but I get the error that I don't have hardware virtualization enabled.

My computer specs if needed -

AMD FX 4100 @ 3.6 GHz
nVidia GeForce GTX 550 ti 1GB
1TB of Hard drive
8GB RAM
Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit
ASUS M5A78L-MLX Motherboard.

If you're wondering, I did use a program called securable, which tells you if your PC's hardware virtualization is enabled, and it says yes.

So please tell me if I can actually enable it on this motherboard.

Thanks.
