Virtualization

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Virtual PC does not work without hardware virtualization. If I run Windows Virtual PC and click to “Create Virtual Machine†I get an error. The error message has a link which takes me to where I can download and run the Hardware-Assisted Virtualization Detection Tool. When I run this tool, I am warned that the hardware-assisted virtualization is not enabled and it give me another link.

This takes me to an intranet page with this warning:

Although OEMs have been shipping hardware virtualization in PCs for three years, hardware virtualization is not available in all PCs—so even if your PC is new, it may not have hardware virtualization.

And this seems to be the case with this machine. After doing the steps go into the BIOS during startup, I did not find any mention in the BIOS settings for selecting the Virtualization Technology.

The computer I am using is a HP COMPAQ DC 7800. What computers have Virtulaization and which ones do not? Is there a list somewhere?

This has to do with the CPU. From what I see the DC 7800 comes with a slew of processors, most of which should support virtualization.

The bolded ones support Intel® Virtualization Technology, whereas the unbolded ones don't. Check your CPU and let me know what you've got.
Bye Bye 775
