guest installation problem


I have a problem that i have installed VMware server-1.0.4 and i am trying to install rhel package of 64-bit processor in my host machine which is also a 64-bit os.When i try to boot by ISO image, i get the following messages after loading of vmlinuz and initrd

: Your CPU does not support long mode. Use a 32bit distribution.

what is this problem when my host machine is having 64-bit OS & my VMserver support 64-bit OS.I am unable to install that 64-bit guest os on it.Please help me.

You need a processor with VT and EMT64 support in order to run a 64-bit guest. You don't have one - ergo...

1. Refer to the BIOS manual for the setting.
2. Flash the BIOS in the hope the option appears in an update. See if you can obtain firmware that supports VT.
3. Give up - your BIOS doesn't support VT. Use 32bit VMs.

If you told the mobo vendor that you intended the machine to run 64bit VMs - then you may be able to get them to replace the bios or the mobo.
