Virtualisation enabling in the BIOS

HP Recommended
Pavilion dv9700
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

In order to run VMWare client, I need to enable vt-x (virtualisaion)

 

I upgraded the BIOS from F.57 to F58 (The latest published by HP) bit there isn't an option to enable it in the BIOS. (In fact, I have never seen so few configuration options in a BIOS before)

 

I tried google, and read a lot of irrelevant threads, then found this forum but a search for virtualisation returns zero hits.

 

I don't believe I am the first person to have this problem on a relatively old piece of hardware. I downloaded Coreinfo from Sysinternals and the output tells me the processor is capable.... I am considering loading an unapproved BIOS but would prefer to stay on the safe side of the track if anyone can provide any insight??

 

Thanks in advance!

 

Pete
