Setting up VM's for testing but machine won't run 64bit systems because....
So I've updated the BIOS and run scores of utilities, but cannot find where to activate VT-x. I have confirmed it is not activated with one utility but it was unable to activate it. VMX is enabled, but nothing is forthcoming on this problem.
Host is 64bit Debian.
Anyone got any ideas??
edit: when I run the VMWare vt.iso I get the message
VT is disabled in the feature control MSR!
But this is clearly wrong with an i7 3770 chip..... or is it? I thought the MSR was processor specific, not mobo.
edit edit: I just tried changing the MSR values with msr-tools... get the response.. CPU 0 cannot set MSR 0x0000003a to 0x0000000000000005 (needs a 5 value to enable VT-x)
this means I cannot enable it, in any way... so... oh well. Time to buy a different machine.
