you need EM64T AND VT-x
So, the EM64T is the one that helping me run VMware Workstation?
BTW, do you have any idea regarding the setting in BIOS called "Virtualization Technology" which I enabled on my PC? Is this what related to EM64T and letting me run 32-bit guests?
If the BIOS offers VT, then it looks like it's either a bug in the BIOS or the mainboard is built to support different CPUs.
you do not need EM64T or VT-x to run 32 bit guests
It's now clear that
- Intel P6100 Processor doesn't support VT-x and thus doesn't run x64-bit guests.
- For running x32-bit guests we don't require either EM64T or VT-x
Need some more clarity on below:
- requires VT-x and EM64T support only for supporting x64-but guests?
- doesn't require either VT-x or EM64T for x32-bit guests (in other words, VMware doesn't require any Virtualization support from hardware for supporting x32bit guests)?
And, I am still confused about purpose of my system BIOS setting named "Virtualization Support"? FYI, mine is a latest LENOVO G560 latop that has this configuration. To my understanding from the sales vendor, it's supposed to run x64bit OSes both at host (with EM64T support) and guest levels (with "Virtualization Support" in BIOS).
Has anyone has similar setup and related experiences which can help me?
What Operating System are you running now? Is a 32bit or 64bit OS?
Update the BIOS Software provided by laptop Vendor, Chek after that you problem will be solved ,

According to Intel® Pentium® Processor P6100 under Advanced Technologies it states Intel® Virtualization Technology (VT-x) No
So if it's not supported then I doubt flashing the BIOS is going to provide a feature the CPU doesn't support to begin with.
The same issue i faced in HP Laptop after updating the bios , my problem was solved , just try
Do you have the same CPU?
