I am running VMWARE ESX SERVER on this old server. The Intel Board is SE7520BD2 and running 2 x Xeon 3.0 Ghz processors with HyperThreading enabled. When I try to load a 64-bit Virtual Machine, I get an error saying that my hardware doesn't support it.
I came across a few posts that say INTEL VT must be enabled in the BIOS to allow virtualization of 64-bit OS but I did not see any such option. Incidentally I came across this post http://communities.intel.com/message/10527;jsessionid=148CC1C82E73C1AD62918F5FE1982A52
and it says my board doesn't support VT. Can one of the experts confirm this. Also if this is true, can you suggest an alternate way to load a 64-bit OS using the same hardware.
To give you some further information. This is the Server Model http://www.intel.com/cd/channel/reseller/apac/eng/products/server/systems/discontinued/sc5300bd2/feature/index.htm
