Hardware virtualization avoidance

Hello!

I'm having a school project this semester that involves working on some dataflow machines and I need to run the simulation on a virtual machine. I tried to boot the VM with VMWare, but it says that my processor must be VT-enabled to run it.
Next I researched a bit and found out that the processor on my laptop (Intel T4500 DualCore, Toshiba C650 series) doesn't support hardware virtualization.
Do you happen to have any solutions to my problem other than buying a new computer? Even changing just the CPU would be an unnecessary waste of money, but if it's the only solution, I'll just have to manage somehow.

Thanks in advance :)

  1. 1st. You cant change a processor in a laptop (almost impossible)
    2nd. There is no work around you cant enable hardware virtualization without a CPU that supports hardwarevirtualization
  2. I think you can run it with no hardware support.

    Ive just tried doesn't work you need hardware virtualization
  4. try oracle virtual box

    Tried it. It doesn't work.

    So you don't thing changing the CPU is an option at all?

    No dice. :(
    It doesn't support .vmx files.
