    CPU does not support long mode

    HarryMuc Novice



      I want to migrate a phsical Redhat Enterprise 3 EM64T server into VMWare ESX 3.0.1. To check whether Redhat Enterprise 3 EM64T will run in ESX 3.0.1 I've created a new virtual machine "Redhat Enterprise 3 (64-bit)" and inserted the RedHat installation disk. But after booting the following message appears:


      "Your CPU does not support long mode. Use a 32bit distribution."


      The hosting server supports the "lm" flag in /proc/cpuinfo. But it seems that the "lm" CPU flag is not available within the virtual machine, also the machine is marked with 64-bit.


      I think RedHat Enterprise EM64T should work inside a virtual machine.


      Is there a way to get RHEL 3 EM64T working inside a ESX 3.0.1 virtual machine?


      Kind regards,
