Default Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-3220 CPU @ 3.30GHz and VT-x technology

The "practice" computer I have has, Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-3220 CPU @ 3.30GHz and when I look on this site ARK | Advanced Search going down the list it indicates that yes this CPU has the virtualization technology.

When I installed the VMware a few days back and tried to run Linux the VMware popped up this message:

Ubuntu 64 bit-VMware Workstation

This virtual machine is configured for 64-bit guest operating systems, however, 64-bit operation is not possible

This host supports Intel VT-x, but Intel VT-x is disabled

Intel VT-x might be disabled if it has been disabled in the BIOS/firmware settings or the host has not been power-cycled since changing this setting.

(1) Verify that the BIOS/firmware settings enable Intel VT-x and disable 'trusted execution'.

(2) Power-cycle the host if either of these BIOS/firmware settings have been changed

(3) Power-cycle the host if you have not done so since installing VMware Workstation.

(4) Update the host's BIOS/firmware to the latest version.

----------------------

I assumed at the time when it said power cycle my machine that I just needed to reboot/restart it.

I was unsure about what it meant about disabling 'trusted execution'.

I ended up uninstalling VMware, and of course went through the whole other issue of that partitioned disk space.

Anyway, I want to attempt to reinstall VMware back onto the practice machine, but needed some input on how to make sure the VT-x is enabled or how to find out where to disabled 'trusted execution'.

What host OS are you running? Have you run 32bit Linux on it?

Look in the BIOS for Virtualization options to be enabled.

Also, look in your VM properties / VMWare settings to see if VT-x is able to be enabled there.
