How can I check if Virtualization is enabled ?
I have v5505 with t7300 CPU which should support Virtualization.
I've read that it isn't the same as Hyper-threading which is disabled in my case.
Can Virtualization work without Hyper-threading ?

Thanks.

Edit: I've just found out that the feature is locked out.... :(

I bought my esprimo 5505 specifically because it had a t7300 processor which supported intel-VT.

I now discover that the bios does not even have the ability to enable the feature.

I cannot tell you how annoyed I am with F-S. :twisted:

It seems like mis-selling or mis-representation to me. If I had wanted to buy an ordinary core 2 duo processor, I could have spent a lot less money.

How about you write a bios update that allows VT to be enabled, as expected by all your customers who bought VT capable processors?

I have an Esprimo Mobile V5505 with a T7300 Core2 Duo CPU and the last version of bios available for download A1D .
I found a great article http://www.linuxformat.gr/?q=content/how-unlock-and-enable-hardware-accelerated-virtualization-technology-vt-sony-vaio-laptop-and which helped me to enable VT on my laptop .
Following the steps described in the article i found that de resource who activates VT in bios is 0x27c .
In order to activate VT :
1) Make a bootable flash as described in article and copy symcmos on it
2) Boot from flash and execute symcmos -L which will output file literal.txt on your flash
3) Modify literal.txt - the line (027C) [0000] to (027C) [0001] and save
4) Boot from flash again and execute symcmos -V2 -uLITERAL.TXT
5) Power off your laptop
6) Power on your laptop and check if VT is enabled - on my laptop it worked
With this solution it won't be activated any supplementary option in bios , it will enable VT only .

Ii can confirm, I also managed to activate VT on my V5505
with bios A1D by setting 027C option to 1.

Thanks horica78 :D

Thanks horica78 (va salut)
I also confirm the activation of hardware-assisted virtualization on Esprimo V5545 - YKAK003784.
Unfortunately, i still can't install Virtual PC (Windows6.1-KB958559-x86.msu) from M$.

Hi claudiulupu,

it seems that you run an unsupported version (edition) of Windows 7.
XP Mode will only run (and install) with Windows 7 Professional, Ultimate or Enterprise,
NOT with the Home Basic or Home Premium. If you have any home edition, just try to upgrade
it to one of the above.

Hi darkmind,
I was running Win7 ver 6.1 (build 7137.0.x86fre.winmain.090521-1745) :( Ultimate [Evaluation Copy-the one that expires on 02-Mar-10). Now I have upgraded :D to Build 7600 and the XP-Mode is running normally.
Thanks for replying.
