KVM on RedHat 5.7 not allowing full virtualization or ISO image install

Hi there

I'm trying to configure virtual O/S's on RHEL5.7, but for some reason the 'Virtualization Method' is greyed out on Paravirtualized [so i can't select Fully virtualized]

And on the next screen, only 'Network install tree [HTTP, FTP, or NFS]' is available. Although i need to install 'Local install media [ISO image]

The RHEL5.7 was installed with all KVM packages [optionals as well].

Help would be appreciated

ok, just for future reference.

The VT was not enabled in the BIOS, so enabling this gave the option for Full Virtualization and Local install.


kvm, rhel
