    Symcmos.EXE and VT on DELL XPS GEN 5

    Hi guys,

    I'm trying to run symcmos.exe (2 different versions) on my DELL XPS GEN 5 and I keep getting an error when trying to read the symbols...

    My BIOS is Phoenix BIOS 1.1A04

    I'm hoping to Lock VT on in CMOS because my A04 BIOS does not have an option to enable VT. The Virtual PC/XP Mode under the Beta worked, I created like 5 virtual machines... Anyway, now that the final release is available I get the message that VT is not enabled. I tried Crystal CPUID's MSR Walker,
    and 0x3a has the value 0, assuming I have the correct register. I believe I want that to have a "5" (bits 0 and 2 set) VT ENABLE and VT LOCK.

    I'm looking for some way to achieve this. The best I can come up with is an article that suggests booting in Ubuntu, install msr tools and use rdmsr and wrmsr.

    Does anyone have any other options?
