I have a HP Workstation xw6200 and am looking to upgrade the processors to one that has VT, Virtual Technology built in.
I have searched for a compatible processor but cannot find any.
I have 2 x Intel 7041's but before I try I wanted to know if these will work or if a Bios upgrade is required before.
Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated as I would really like to get this xw6200 running with Virtual software.
Thanks in advance

Jay, welcome to the forum.
Here are the processors that are supported by HP:
|Processor||Single or dual Intel Xeon processors (Nocona) with EM64T and Hyper-Threading Technology|
|Intel Pentium 4 Processors||Intel Xeon Processor with 800 MHz Front Side Bus, 1 MB L2 cache |
2nd Intel Xeon Processor with 800 MHz Front Side Bus, 1 MB L2 cache
These are the only ones that are in the specs. I don't know if they are compatible with Virtual Technolgy or not.

Thanks for your response but I already have that information from the HP website.
I was looking to get any further info via the forum with regards to CPU's and what, if any with VT, are compatible with this unit.
If anyone can advise as I am trying to run Microsofts Virtual PC and/or VMWare Workstation.
These will not currently run as Virtual Technology (VT) CPU's are required.
Should I find anything in the mean time, I will update this post
Thanks again for your time.
