Hi all, okay this is my first time to use VMware so i getting this error when i wan't to boot Mac on my Windows 7 64bit




"Mac OS X is not supported with binary translation. To run Mac OS X you need a host on which VMware Workstation supports Intel VT-x or AMD-V."



Program says that my CPU is not supporting Intel VT-x but on Intel's page it's says that CPU supporting VT-x technology


EDIT:   I enabled Vt-x in Vmware program and it's says next:



Preferred mode unavailable. Using binary translation instead.



This host supports Intel VT-x, but Intel VT-x is disabled.



Intel VT-x might be disabled if it has been disabled in the BIOS/firmware settings or the host has not been power-cycled since changing this setting.



(1) Verify that the BIOS/firmware settings enable Intel VT-x and disable 'trusted execution.'



(2) Power-cycle the host if either of these BIOS/firmware settings have been changed.



(3) Power-cycle the host if you have not done so since installing VMware Workstation.



(4) Update the host's BIOS/firmware to the latest version.




My CPU is:  Intel Core i5   650     3.2 Ghz, but in bios there is no option to enable VT-x


My workstation is HP Z200
