Detecting Support for VT

Even though the Intel Virtualization Technology was released in 2005, not all current processors from Intel support this technology. The easiest way to verify if your CPU supports this technology is to run the Intel Processor Identification Utility. After you download and install this program, run it and go to the “CPU Technologies” tab. There you will see, besides “Intel (R) Virtualization Technology,” whether your CPU supports it or not. Also, you can see whether your CPU supports the Extended Page Tables (EPT), besides “Intel VT-x with Extended Page Tables.” See Figure 5.
