Hello,

I have a Core 2 Duo e7400 Processor and I am thinking of putting this into my server, BUT it doesn't support VT on my P5B-E Motherboard. I thought Intel says that this processor does support Virtualization Technology, do I replace this processor or install something to make my motherboard recognize the VT in this processor?

Pater,

I read this:

Are you sure the e7400 doesn't support VT?

If you check the wikipedia link, it states "some versions of the E7400 and E7500 (Wolfdale)". According to your link, it states that VT will be added "in a month or so"....the article is dated May '09. And if you click on the link within the article, it states the following:

"According to Intel, the VT-enhanced versions of the mentioned chips will start being delivered on June 12 and since they'll feature new S-spec and MM numbers they may require a BIOS update (to enable the virtualization tech)"

Did you buy your E7400 after the 12th of June? Even if you did, there's no guarantee that you got the updated verion of the E7400 w/VT. I suggest you have a look at the "S-spec". If it's already installed, you'll have to pull it out & look for the number on the top of the CPU...it has to be SLGW3.

^ Can't I use CPU-z or some program to tell me this?

This is what annoies me with Intel. I mean you would think any cpu that intel except for the ultra budget cpu's like celerons and atoms would support VT by now, but nope. Only intel's the highend and mainstream models will support VT across the board. What Intel considers their "budget" models (regardless of how much it cost), is hit or miss when it comes to supporting VT. So a 160 dollar Core 2 Quad Q8200 doesn't support VT, but yet an 68 dollar Pentuim D E5400 does? Yeah..... I don't get that.

Iron Sharpens Iron.

My Pentium D 3.0 GHz CPU in my Server supports VT, but my Pentium D 3.4 GHz CPU in my Shuttle XPC doesn't. Thats a great thing for running another server on top of this one, but is a shame and I agree with Cobra. I might be swapping the Pentium D Shuttle with the e7400 Computer.
