I have Intel® Core"2 Quad Processor Q6600 with Intel Desktop Board DG45ID. I am using VMware Workstation 6.0.4. Virtualization technology is enabled in the BIOS and I installed 64-bit Windows 2008 Enterprise Edition guest OS on 32-bit OS.

When I am trying to intall Hyper-V from Server Manager role, it showing the following error:

"Hyper-V cannot be installed
Server Manager has detected that the processor on this computer is not capable with Hyper-V. To install this role the processor must have a supported version of hardware assisted virtualization, and that feature must be turned on in the BIOS."

Could you please tell me the exact location in the BIOS where from I can enable Hyper-V.

Attached is the Summary Information of Intel® Core"2 Quad Processor. Please suggest me whether that processor will support Hyper-V or not.
