i've got an N500 with an intel T7700, and i need to be able to enable intel VT, but there is no option for it in the BIOS.
So, i'm stuck with a processor capable of hardware virtualisation, but i can't run virtual pc because harware virtualisation is disabled by default in th BIOS, and no option to enable it.
=> two questions:
1) how do we persuade Lenovo to (finally) provide a decent BIOS upgrade?
2) If i make a BIOS dump / load, what do i have to change to enable intel VT?

I really need this - to be abe to work from home I need to be able to connect to the cusomers applications using Citrix client, and with their setup this doesn't work on 64-bit versions of Windows. So either I can run a virtual 32-bit machine on my N500, either I need to purchase another laptop. In that case, the Lenovo would have been a complete waste of money and time. all I need is a bios with the option to enable Intel VTx.
To be brief: Lenovo 500 = good laptop, good harware, good value, but rendred completely unusable due to ONE missing option in the pc's bios.
Such a shame.
I'll never buy another Lenovo again, you may consider yourselves to be "low end" but there are limits. 500€ down the drain, well done Lenovo, how hard can it be to enable one single processor option in your bios?

I think you can upgrade bios, if you have Vista. Just find bios installer for you laptop version. I have another problem, I don't wan't install Vista just to upgrade my bios. Yes, I bought Lenovo laptop with FreeDos and install Linux on it.
