help installing ubuntu with VMware/2600k

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm trying to install ubuntu 11.04 as a vm on VMware v8.0 and am having some slight difficulties with my 2600k. I've tried both the x86 and x64 distros and keep getting

"Software virtualization is incompatible with long mode on this platform. Disabling long mode. Without long mode support, the virtual machine will not be able to run 64 bit code."

so I click "ok" since it's the only option and then I get this pop up

"This virtual machine is configured for 64-bit guest operating systems. However, 64-bit operation is not possible."

with an option to "continue without 64-bit support, yes or no?"

It gets to the next screen and then says

"This kernel requires an x86-64 CPU, but only detected an i686 CPU. Unable to boot - please use a kernel appropriate for your CPU."

Am I missing something? is there a guide from start to finish for getting this vm to work? HELP ME PLEASE!!!!! Thanks
