Unable to install Windows 2003 64-bit virtual machine on IBM X346 (VmWare ESX 3.5)
Posted on 2008-10-09
I have a IBM X346 (model:884025M) server with VMmWare ESX 3.5 installed on it. Im trying to install a virtual machine with Windows 2003 64-bit as the OS, but am getting the following error:
"Attempting to load an x64 operating system, however this CPU is not compatible with x64 mode. Please install a 32-bit X86 operating system. Setup cannot continue. Press any key to exit"
Can someone please tell me if this processor(Xeon, 3.2 Ghz...) can support x64 bit OS and If yes, how to enable VT as I cannot find this option in the BIOS?
