T500 - Intel P8800: HW Virtualization not recognized.

I am trying to setup Microsoft's Windows XP Mode which requires HW virtualizaiton to be enabled. I went into my T500's BIOS and enabled HW virtualizaiton under the CPU menu, however, when I run boot and run Microsoft's havdetectiontool.exe it tells me that HW virtualization is not enabled.

 

Can anyone tell me what I am missing here?

 

Thanks

Two things.

 

1. Make sure you completely power off and on again after enabling virtualization

2. Are you running any other sort of virtualization software, such as VMware?  If so, that may take control as only one app can be vt enabled at a time.

The issue was fixed by completely powering off the PC. Multiple restarts will not work for this BIOS setting.

Thanks for the help Toby!
