    Used this tool,
    Download Microsoft® Hardware-Assisted Virtualization Detection Tool from Official Microsoft Download Center
    No go VMware said the same thing boo-hoo anyone have instruction to enable in bios ?
    Spec's are added,
    What CPU do you have? Run CPU-Z and it should tell you if your CPU is capable of Hardware assisted Virtualization.

    Given that your BIOS looks ancient (copyright 2009?) that's at least 5 years... low-mid level CPU's didn't have VT in those days

    Most modern Hypervisors require VT technology and have retired their old non-VT hypervisors...

    Your processor doesn't support VTx ARK | Intel® Pentium® Processor E5200 (2M Cache, 2.50 GHz, 800 MHz FSB)

    As I understand it that means you can't run x64. There is a 32 bit Win TP though.

    Hi Mike,
    Your MB is using an Acer modified Phoenix BIOS. On the first screen when entering BIOS, select Frequency/Voltage Control then on the next screen select CPU Feature. You should get a screen (2nd screen) as shown below:

    NOTE: If you don't have this option then it means your MB/CPU does not support virtualization. If you do then that's all you need to enable for VmWare, you don't need to add Hyper-V feature using VmWare.
