I have built a PC with following characteristics: CPU - Intel Pro Core 2 Quad 9550 (which should support virtualization), Motherboard - Intel DX48BT2 (which I guess should also support VT), RAM - 8 G. DDR3. Now I am trying to install hyper-v role in Server 2008 64-bit edition and I got a message: "Server Manager has detected that the processor on this computer is not compatible with Hyper-V. To install this role, the processor must have a supported version of hardware virtualization, and that feature must be turned on in the BIOS". When I look at the BIOS I can see XD settings which is set correctly and virtual appliance in which all options set to Enabled. However, I do not see virtualization options and I have no idea how virtual appliance is correlated with virtualization. But anyway Hyper-V does not work. Can somebody tell me what is wrong in my hardware configuration.

XD is execute bit disable. You're looking for VT, or Vanderpool Technology in the BIOS.

Stating the obvious: there is a reality disconnect between:

Intel Pro Core 2 Quad 9550 (which should support virtualization), Motherboard - Intel DX48BT2 (which I guess should also support VT)

and

However, I do not see virtualization options

I suggest checking facts. if your processor supports VT, then maybe a bios update helps.
