Recently I ordered Intel Core2Duo E8400 CPU and Intel DG33BU motherboard. Both these are supposed to support VT-x, and I already used virtualization on identical combination elsewhere. But when I have put the machine together, I found out that it beheaves as if there was no virtualization present. BIOS doesn't give me option to enable/disable virtualization, and CPUID.1 returns with virtualization-support flag (ECX bit 5) set to false.
Do you have any idea what's the problem?
Following is log from Intel CPU Identification Utility.I would have posted log from Intel Chipset Identification Utility too, but it doesn't support 64-bit Vista. However, if that log would be cruical in resolving this problem, I can install some other OS and post it too.
