My mother board is ga-g41mt-s2p Please could you let me know which processor is compatible for 64 bit virtualization. I trying to run Hyper-v in win 2008-R2 or trying to install 64 bit virtual host form. it is saying my processor is not compatible.

  1. Assuming you meant Core 2 Duo E4400 and GA-G41MT-S2P (rev. 1.3).

    CPU support list - http://www.gigabyte.com/support-downloads/cpu-support-popup.aspx?pid=3743

    GA-G41MT-S2P (rev. 1.3) ; manual - http://download.gigabyte.us/FileList/Manual/mb_manual_ga-g41mt-d3p(s2p)_v1.3_e.pdf ; page 27 lists 'Virtualization Technology -> Enabled by Default.

    Intel Core 2 Duo E4400 - http://ark.intel.com/products/29753/Intel-Core2-Duo-Processor-E4400-(2M-Cache-2_00-GHz-800-MHz-FSB)
    Intel® Virtualization Technology (VT-x) - No

    Most 64-bit Virtualization require VT-x support so right off you have an issue with your CPU.

    VT-d CPU's http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_microprocessors#Intel_Core_2

    Example Intel Core 2 Duo Processor E6850 - http://ark.intel.com/products/30785/Intel-Core2-Duo-Processor-E6850-(4M-Cache-3_00-GHz-1333-MHz-FSB)

    The 'problem' is finding an LGA 775 CPU much less one with VT-d support -- used/refurbish ; example http://www.microcenter.com/search/search_results.phtml?add_Ntt=775&search_within_go.x=0&search_within_go.y=0&N=4294966995&sortby=match
