  1. Hi,

    I installed Windows 7 ultimate sp1 x64 (my CPU is compatible of running the 64 bit version of Windows). After it I installed VMware 10 x86 (I couldn't find the 64-bit version of vmware) on that OS. Since I would want to have several OSes in my machine so I tried to install the Win 8.1 x64 on the VMware, but faced this message (below image). What can I do, setting the BIOS?

    Yep, launch your BIOS and enable VT-x virtualisation.

    I went into the BIOS and could to find the "Intel Virtualization", then I enabled it and problem became fixed. Thank you.
