HP Workstation xw6200 processor upgrade

Hi,

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

Re: HP Workstation xw6200 processor upgrade

Hi Oldgeekster,

 

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.

 

Jay
