Unable to install 64-bit Guest OS in VMWare Server
Posted on 2009-04-02
I'm attempting to install a VM of Windows Server 2003 Standard x64.
However, when I try to do so I get the following message:
"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."
The server has a 64-bit CPU and OS so I'm not really sure where to go from here. I've read that this can have to do with the way VT is setup in the BIOS but it doesn't really explain what I need to do.
Can anybody provide any guidance? Thanks in advance.
