Hardware Virtualization with Z68 chipset

Anyone knows if there is an issue with Z68 chipset and hardware Virtualization?
I got a new Assus P8Z68-v LX (lga 1155) and an Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2600K

I need to run VMware guest 64bir OS but it tells me to Enabale VT an disable trusted execution in BIOS
I did not see any option for this in the setup.

I am about to replace this MB
Can anyone recomend a 1155 mother board with 2 PCIe 16 slots (yes 2 video cards )

Thx

    Link: Compare Intel® Products

    Check the "Advanced Technologies" rows.

    Intel® vPro Technology, Intel® Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O (VT-d) and Intel® Trusted Execution Technology

    I don't really undestand the VM universe, but these technologies only exists in i7-2600, don't exist in i7-2600k, maybe you should change the cpu too?
    Since you undestand a little bit of this universe could you explain a bit to me if one of these technologies would help you?
  2. I do a lot of SharePoint development and it comes in all kinds of flavors so I need to have several test machines. Using virtual Machines, allows me to have a test machine for each environment the customer has on the project I work at a time.
    The issue is that SharePoint must run on 64Bit OS.
    Realizing that the processor I bought will not do it is frightening I don't think Tiger Direct will Take back the processor :-)
    I have one virtual Machine of 32Bit OS and it does work.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I replaced the CPU with i7 2600 and it is working now
