Re: sorry I think I'm dumb
Of course Dave, why do you ask?
it's the only way isn't it?
Problem is: I have to sell something before I can buy one more laptop!
I successfully installed Esxi at work on a lab machine inside workstation 6.5, created nested VMs, played with Freenas a little... slow but enough for learning purposes.
So the big mistake was: Ok, at least I'll be able to do the same, any core 2 duo will let me do it.
I really couldn't imagine that 64 bit support is not equivalent to hardware virtualization...
The option could have been missing in the BIOS as well I know, but I wanted to take the risk...
But in my case, the option is not present because the T5550 doesn't support it!
To be sure, we must go for a T7xxx!
