Windows 7: VT "Disabled" for x64 VMWare installs?

VT "Disabled" for x64 VMWare installs?

Hi Guys,

I've got a weird dilemma going on with my work system here. It's an HP 6000 Pro SFF workstation with an i5 2400, running VMware Player 4. I run this thing into the dirt and it's totally cool with that, which is awesome. Except for the fact that I can't install 64-bit VM's on it because it always comes up with a "VT is disabled or not functioning" error. The host OS is 64-bit (Windows 7 Pro running 8Gb RAM), the BIOS has VT enabled... the processor's obviously supposed to handle virtualization... but I don't know where else there may be a switch disabling the feature. If anyone has any idea please let me know. Thanks very much.

Nevermind, it was just the BIOS. There are 3 settings in my specific BIOS regarding VT and the execute bit disabling. My face is a little red, but this is the 3rd question I've posted and I've never gotten a single reply to any of them. Sheesh guys.
