Stupid Bloody Intel S5000XVN BIOS!!

Wasted 4hrs this morning dealing with this issue… All I needed to do was to power cycle the machine (turn completely off, then back on again). I updated the bios on this motherboard; Intel S5000XVN, yesterday and needed to enable the Intel Virtualization Technology (VT). I did this, however in order for this setting to take affect you need to power cycle.

This machine has virtual machines on it hosted by VMWare Server. When it came to starting the 64bit guest linux machines, VMware Server would say I needed to enable VT. IT IS ENABLED!!! Very frustrating…
