I have the aforementioend motherboard and it appears that hardware virtualization is disabled on it (as according to vmware). I've looked at the bios options as well as the manual and haven't found any option to be able to turn it on. Am I buggered or is there something I'm missing?
On most P8P67 motherboards (you don't specify which), this should be under Advanced - CPU Configuration - Intel Virtualization Technology. If you don't have this option, then your processor probably doesn't support it.
