How to enable VT on a ASUS RS120-E4-PA4 server

Hello all,

I've got a server from a customer I would like to use for Microsoft Hyper-V.

Hyper-V installs fine. However - when I start a VM - it complains that I have to enable VT.

In the bios however there is no option to enable VT (I used the last bios from the asus site).

I had the same problem with my Sony Vaio and Win7/XP mode - however - I used a bios hack.

Does anyone have a bios hack for the ASUS RS120-E4-PA4?

Does the system have a proc that supports hardware-assisted virtualization?  If not, then a BIOS hack won't help either.  If so, then is hacking the BIOS on a customer's server really the best option?

Well - to be honest.. It's a backup server in case the main server will fail.

I'll have a look into the processor - and will postback tomorrow.

Impossible for one of two reasons - either the BIOS is not equipped with the option to turn VT on/off or the processor itself does not support VT - most likely the latter, as VT will generally auto-enable if there is no BIOS option.  So, I'm not sure why "delete" the question when the answer to the question I asked you would be the answer you were looking for - if the processor doesn't support VT, then it can't be done.

I believe that points should be awarded based on comment http:#a30026869.  Seeing as how the possibility of enabling VT hinges entirely upon the processor's support of the technology, checking the processor's specs would be the first and most important step.  He did not say what processor he has or what he found out about his processor's capabilities.  I'm guessing that he found his processor does not support it, so in that sense it is impossible to "enable it".  But that confirmation can only come from checking the processor's specs.
