enabling VT-x on an Optiplex 760

Hi,

Does anyone know how to enable VT-x on the Optiplex 760? This is an option which is locked by the BIOS, but it is currently disabled and my BIOS does not offer any way to enable it (the only BIOS option I have is to enable VT-d). I have been struggling with this for quite some time - I know that the CPU has this capability, I just can't figure out how to turn it on. 

 

Thanks!

Have you found a resolution to this issue yet. I am having the same issue.

Yes, after getting the runaround from Dell for about a month, they finally told us that it was not possible to do this on the 760. We had to return our machines and purchase 960s instead. The BIOS on the Optiplex 960 allows you to enable VT-x as expected.

Hope that helps...
