I have t T60 (1953-CTO) with T5500 @ 1.66GHz.
(Phoenix FirstBIOS(tm) Notebook Pro Version 2.0 for ThinkPad)
I upgraded to BIOS version 2.26 (79ETE6WW).
I was hoping to find a way to enable Intel VT.
The only BIOS setting I see is
Core Multi-Processing [Enabled]
Other posts have mentioned a
Intel Virtualization Technology (VT-X)
The info show the BIOS at 2.26
Am I missing something?
Any ideas on how to enable VT-x?

Hi mjelenovo, and welcome to the Lenovo User Community!
Unfortunately the T5500 does not support virtualization .
I note that you no longer need VT to run Windows 7 XP mode, if that is your goal.

I just found that out @
I was actually trying to run QNX in a VirtualBox.
VirtualBox's error was "VT-X/AMD-V hardware acceleration has been enabled but is not
operational. Certain guest (e.g. OS/2 and QNX) require this feature.
Please ensure that you have enabled VT-X/AMD-V properly in the BIOS of your host computer.
You can't get there from here.

Hello mates, I bought a Lenovo T60 1951 59g. The laptop was in storage since the production date and it is new. I puted on it a 320GB Western Digital Blue caviar for a balanced performance and low power consumption. The memory that i installed is 3GB as is chipset limited. Now i am going to put a new CPU on it and propably T7600 but i am not sure if it is supported. If somebody knows let inform me.

FYI, I have a T60, I upgraded the CPU to a T7200. It is 2 GHz, but more cheaper than the T7600. If you are on the budget, it could be a possible altrnative.

I have a T60 2008-cto does it support a upgrade to a t7200 ? cpuid says mainbord is a 2008-w19 and it currently has a t2500 installed. I want to use the t7200 to gain 64 bit and ram upgrades to higher gig's What Ram would this support if I was able to use the t7200 cpu? Also the mainbords rev is 03.
