recently I bought an Intel mini-itx d525mw motherboard having as objective to set up Virtual Machines under VMWare Server5 to gather some knowledges. Installing unix based Servers on vmware I thought I should give a try with Windows Home Server 2011 as well. During the install process I had to realize that as Guest won't run on 64bit. Unfortunately the Processor doesn't support VT from Bios. Is there a way to get Home Server 2011 to work under VMWare Server? I would like to use it as File Server.
As the error message said, you need a processor with hardware virtualization support. The Intel Atom D25 series processors which are included with these boards do not have virtualization support.
Only a very small subset of Intel Atom processors support virtualization. You will not be able to build an "embedded" virtualization server using an Atom unless you choose your processor carefully.
