VMWARE ESXi and Dell PowerEdge 64bit problem
Posted on 2011-02-22
Today, a refurbished Dell PowerEdge 2900 Tower arrived today, and I imediately plugged it in and installed ESXI. I figured out how to create a vmware image so I created my first one to be Windows 7 64bit. When I started the image up I recieved the following message from vmware:
"...this virtual machine is configured for 64-bit guest operating systems. However, 64-bit is not possible.... verify that the BIOS settings enable VT and disable 'trusted execution'..."
What the heck is this? I am not too familiar with the Dell PowerEdge BIOS settings so I hope someone there is, and knows what I need to change. This system is refurbished. It has dual Xeon 64bit processors with 24 GB of ram.
