I bought an HP server (830582-425) a few months ago and I would like to run Microsoft VDI on it.
I ran the coreinfo.exe command on the server and these are the results (attached)

Microsoft Windows [Version 6.3.9600]

C:\>coreinfo.exe -v

Note: Coreinfo must be executed on a system without a hypervisor running f
accurate results.

Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2609 v4 @ 1.70GHz
Intel64 Family 6 Model 79 Stepping 1, GenuineIntel
Microcode signature: 0B00001E
HYPERVISOR      *       Hypervisor is present
VMX             -       Supports Intel hardware-assisted virtualization
EPT             -       Supports Intel extended page tables (SLAT)

It seems the server does not support EPT which is needed for SLAT.
I found an article which says some HP servers incorrectly state they don't support SLAT

The BIOS settings are all correct but the coreinfo.exe command returns the same results.
