    First of all, hello to all in this forum.
    This is my first post here :)

    So anyway here is the problem.

    When trying to install a 64bit guest OS on VMware I am getting the following error.
    You have configured this virtual machine to use a 64-bit guest operating system. However, this host is not capable of running 64-bit virtual machines or this virtual machine has 64-bit support disabled.

    I cannot find anything in BIOS that will enable VT. I bought this motherboard because it was claimed that it is VT ready.
    I updated the BIOS to the latest version.
    Here are all the Hardware and Software specs.

    Motherboard: Abit iX38 Quad-GT BIOS ID:14
    CPU: Quad Q9400
    OS: Centos 5.3 64Bit
    VMware: Workstation: 6.5.3 build-185404

    I do not understand why VT is not option in my BIOS. :(

    Thank you.
