    VMware Workstation 64-bit guest operating systems are not supported by this host and will not run.

      So, I'm having this issue with VMware Workstation when I'm running the New Virtual Machine Wizard and on the Guest operating system option it will show 64-bit guest operating systems are not supported by this host and will not run.    So what I did first thing is to make sure that Virtualization Technology is turned on in the BIOS setting and it is then power cycle the server boot to OS still no luck so I went back to BIOS roam around the BIOS setting flipping settings on/ off that may have something to do with VT and still no luck, I then roam around on different forums and still didn't found a solution for my issue then I thought what if I turn off the Virtualization Technology.... after doing that the 64-bit guest operating systems are not supported by this host and will not run doesn't show up anymore! so at this point I'm not sure which one should I follow, my BIOS setting or VMware Workstation.  Please help, any input would be greatly appreciated.
