I'm trying to install Windows 2008 server 64 bit operating system on VMWARE workstation 9 which is installed on WINDOWS 7 HOME PREMIUM 64 BIT . and i'm getting this error
can anybody help me on this problem ?
Thanks for reply.
Lately I have realised that this error message is because one of the following reasons.
- VT is not enabled in BIOS
- CPU is not capable of VT
There is a simple Microsoft tool to check CPU VT capability and BIOS configuration. details about the tool is documented here . http://virtualcloudzz.blogspot.com.au/2013/06/steps-to-check-processor-cpu-vt.html
I had similar issue while implementing VMware view local mode, I have seen similar error message on client PC after View desktop checkout and power on. More details here
I am facing the same issue. I am having VMware workstation 8.0 installed on Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit. I am using the processor Intel Core i7-3840QM. I checked on the Intel site and conformed that this processor does support VT-x. I checked in the BIOS that the Virtualization is Enabled. But still I am getting this error when trying to create a new VM for Windows 64 bit, " 64-bit guest operating systems are not supported by this host and will not run" . I ran MS tool to check the VT compatibility and it says VT is NOT supported. This seems weird. Is there anything I am missing out here?
I am not able to find VMware.log file on my machine. Is there a particular setting on VMware workstation to enable the logging?
I searched in following locations for the VMware.log file
I am not having VDM folder itself!
And this one is from Windows 7 X64 virtual machine. I tried to install it by adding 2 cores to the processor in VM Settings.I am not able to install though.
Your CPU is, in fact, reporting that it doesn't support VT-x. It looks like you are running under a hypervisor, though it appears to be a rogue hypervisor that doesn't declare itself through CPUID information. To the best of your knowledge, are you running the "host" Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit OS under a hypervisor?
No. McAfee Deep Defender installs a small hypervisor between the hardware and your host OS. As a result, the host OS runs in a virtual machine. Since McAfee DD doesn't virtualize VT-x, hardware-assisted virtualization is not available to the nested hypervisor (VMware Workstation). Without hardware-assisted virtualization, you can't run a 64-bit guest OS on Intel hardware with a VMware product.
