VMware 64bit chip support

One step forward and two steps back.

I now have a perfect 10.10 environment setup. 64bit with 8Gig of memory. One of the last steps were to install VMware to run a copy of 64bit Windoze. No can do! My chip, although 64 bit does not support 64 bit. Aii joooo.

I can not seem to win. I have another CPU floating about and hopefully it has VT support. Now where did I put it?

Alright, found it!


Now where is my CPU paste. Hope this does not require a reinstall. :-(
