Intel Virtualization on Precision T1700

Jump to solution

I am considering purchase of  a  T1700  with  intel  i7-4770.   Upon checking intel websites,  i find that intel is referring me  to  Dell (manufacturer),  even though  they  say  that the  CPU  is capable  of  Intel virtualization in BIOS.   Can  someone  verify  that  DELL  BIOS  has  these capability  turned  on, and i can  use this CPU to full extent  ?   I need  virtualization  in  my next  PC.

Thanks -  seeking

Hi @seekingbuddha ,

Checked on Dell Precision T1700 Mini-Tower Owner's Manual and table 8 shows that Intel VT is enabled by default.

Table 8. Virtualization SupportOption Description

VirtualizationThis option specifies whether a Virtual Machine Monitor (VMM) can utilize the additional hardware capabilities provided by Intel Virtualization technology.
  • Enable Intel Virtualization Technology - This option is enabled by default.
VT for Direct I/OEnables or disables the Virtual Machine Monitor (VMM) from utilizing the additional hardware capabilities provided by Intel® Virtualization technology for direct I/O.
  • Enable Intel Virtualization Technology for Direct I/O - This option is enabled by default.
Trusted ExecutionThis option specifies whether a Measured Virtual Machine Monitor (MVMM) can utilize the additional hardware capabilities provided by Intel Trusted Execution technology. The TPM virtualization technology, and Virtualization technology for direct I/O must be enabled to use this feature.
  • Trusted Execution - This option is disabled by default.
