Enabling virtualization in BIOS

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
- 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
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
Please help!

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
