@saber tabatabaee yazdi Do you enable virtualisation mode in bios? – Sanja Melnichuk Dec 26 '10 at 10:04
@sanja-melnichuk VT Enables = YES – saber tabatabaee Dec 26 '10 at 10:06
My HP DL380 G4 doesn't support hardware virtualization. Are you sure that yours does? – Cody Gray Dec 26 '10 at 10:14
My HP ML380 G4 support and when i VT enabled solved the problem like this not this. – saber tabatabaee Dec 26 '10 at 11:30
2008R2 is 64-bit only. Does your DL380G4 have 64-bit processors? – SpacemanSpiff Dec 26 '10 at 17:46

Whether the option is in the BIOS or not, the Xeons that were available in the G4 were Nocona Cores, which do not support VT-x.

Mine has 2 MB of L2 cache, making it an Irwindale rather than a Nocona. I believe lots of other models did, as well. Either way, your answer is still correct—neither the Nocona nor the Irwindale Xeons support VT-x. – Cody Gray Dec 27 '10 at 9:04

@saber tabatabaee: Try this tool: CPU Identification Utility Displays CPU features for VMotion compatibility, EVC and indicates 64-bit VMware support.
