VMWare 64bit compatibility

I use VM Ware and have Windows XP and Windows 8 installed. I rarely use either but need to look now and again if one of my Club members has a problem. I tried to open Windows 8 toaday and got this message ;

happy to go into the BIOS if it won't interfere with my Windows 7 installation. I will take a Macrium Reflect image before doing anything but that wont save my BIOS, will it? Any thoughts please. Not urgent!
Windows XP which is the more important install works fine so i don't want to loose that as I need it for my old scanner!

HAve now found this:

But this has left me a bit confused. I can't find the Processor Sub Menu so I have a mind to un install Win 8 and forget it! It doesn't seem worth the hassle!

Maybe post #2 here will help,

In the BIOS use the Advanced Mode, open the Advanced Tab, open CPU Configuration, and ensure that Intel Virtualization Technology is enabled.

Thank you Derek. So easy to do after all. It looked so complex to start with. Took about 4 mins and all is now up nd running. Can't say i like Win 8 any more but it has got a number of good points.
Thanks again.
