Hi all,

I own a M14X R2. I am having VMware workstation 8.0 installed on Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit. I am using the processor Intel Core i7-3840QM. I checked on the Intel site and conformed that this processor does support VT-x. I checked in the BIOS that the Virtualization is Enabled. But still I am getting this error when trying to create a new VM for Windows 64 bit, " 64-bit guest operating systems are not supported by this host and will not run" . I ran MS tool to check the VT compatibility and it says VT is NOT supported. This seems weird.

Is there anything I am missing out here? Anyone here facing the same issue? ... I somehow not able to believe that even after having i7 I will not be able to create 64 bit OS virtual machines.

I figured out the problem. I have McAfee Deep Defender installed which limits the VMware to 32 bit. After uninstalling DD I am able to have 64 bit virtual machines.
