Windows XP /Window 7 - Boot into the BIOS:

Restart Machine, using F2, F8 or F12 to boot to BIOS.  You should see a message on which to use...

Look for "Intel Virtualization Technology", "Virtual Support" or similar wording.  You may also see something called "Vanderpool Technology" if it is an older system. This could also be under the CPU settings in the BIOS.

If you are still having issues and want to verify that Virtualization is possible with your system, Microsoft has a Hardware-Assisted Virtualization Detection Tool that you can run and find out if your system supports Virtualization optimization and whether or not it is enabled or disabled.

Unfortunately neither the User's Guide nor the Quick Reference guide shows the details of the BIOS Setup screens ... so you'll need to look very carefully in the BIOS to find those settings.

It will typically be in the "Advanced Chipset Features" section of the BIOS (wording is different in different BIOS's, but it'll almost certainly say "advanced").

What you want to enable is "Intel VT-x"    So look for that and simply enable it.

I thank all of you for your suggestions and comments!

First off I want to turn on Virtualization. I didn't say that before, sorry.

helpfinder - The version I have is A13.

ThinkSpaceSolutions - I have verified that my M6300 can handle Virtualization using the  Hardware-Assisted Virtualization Detection Tool

garycase - Thank you for not allowing me to chase my tail looking for something not in the M6300 manual.

I am going "take a look" under the hood to see if I can locate option that will turn on Virtualization. I need that to add XP mode under Win 7 Pro.
