Hi, I am trying to enable VT support on my machine so I can run 64-bit clientOSs in VMware Workstation. I currently have - an HP Pavillion Slimline s3750t - Intel E7400 Core 2 Duo (does NOT support VT) - Phoenix Award BIOS 5.23 - Irvine motherboard I am planning to upgrade my proc to a Core 2 Quad 9300 or 9400 which DOES support Intel VT-x. When I boot into BIOS today I do NOT see a switch for VT technology. HP does not offer an updated BIOS of any kind for my machine. - If i install the new proc will I see the VT switch, allowing me to enable the feature on the motherboard? - OR, can I somehow get an alternate BIOS that lets me enable the feature on my motherboard? Please help! Mark.

I don't believe that your board is VT capable, although, my board doesn't show a VT option if I don't have a VT capable CPU installed.
Hi newcomer and welcome to the Tom's hardware forum.
Your current CPU don't support VT technology and if u want upgrade the CPU first check that ur current mobo support the CPU that u want install.
