There is no option in the VM BIOS.

think physical what does the error message mean on a physical box, if you had installed ESXi 5.0.

Yes check Intel VT is enabled in BIOS, but your virtual installation does not know this is a virtual environment.

So, the other option is Intel VT not available to this Guest, quite normal in a nested environment.

Check the Virtualisation settings in the VM Settings, and change from Automatic.
