Issue with VT supporting
Hello, I try to create domainU of Windows 7 in Xen, but I get error:

Error: HVM guest support is unavailable: is VT/AMD-V supported by your CPU and enabled in your BIOS?

I understand what this say, but I'm not find any way to enable VT, and I know that my CPU supports it.

Here some information:
OS: CentOS 5.5
Laptop: Gigabyte W566,
Intel Merom Dual Core Processor T7100~7800
Intel Celeron M Processor 540~550
(from user's manual)

Relevant output of cat /proc/cpuinfo:
processor : 0
model name : Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T5250 @ 1.50GHz
flags : fpu tsc msr pae cx8 apic mtrr cmov pat clflush acpi mmx fxsr sse sse2 ss ht syscall nx lm constant_tsc pni est ssse3 cx16 lahf_lm

processor : 1
(The same data like for processor 0)

uname -a:
Linux andreys-comp 2.6.18-194.8.1.el5xen #1 SMP Thu Jul 1 19:41:05 EDT 2010 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
(I updated kernel today)

Relevant lines from domain configuration file:
kernel = "/usr/lib/xen/boot/hvmloader"
memory = 1024
disk = [ 'phy:/sda1,sda,w' ]

I searched all BIOS but find anything...

Any suggestions?
Thank you for ahead.

Why do you say your CPU supports it?


Intel® Virtualization Technology (VT-x) No
If your CPU supported it and it was enabled in the BIOS, your CPU flags would include vmx or svm.

Very strange... There was some site were was written that my CPU supports VT... But I thing that Intel's site has more authentic information :)

So have I some way to run Windows 7 over Xen on my laptop?
