Windows 7: What if I don't have processor with Intel VT supported?

What if I don't have processor with Intel VT supported?

My processor doesn't seem to have Intel VT support. I checked it by going to BIOS and I didn't see Virtulisation option there. It confirms that my processor doesn't support Intel VT right?

another question - what will I lose if I don't have VT in my laptop?

My ultimate aim is to run Win Server 2008 R2 x64 in my laptop along with existing Win 7 Home Premium x64. How can I do that? Can somebody please help me in this regard?

Thanks.

Thanks for your reply. I checked that, my processor doesn't support.

My questions is - is it a big problem now or in near future if I don't have VT support? Is my laptop outdated?

Thanks again.
