i have this laptop: its running windows7 32 bit ultimate

im trying to run a 64 bit operateing system in virtual box, but it crashes at boot, also vb warns me that i have no VT-x enabled when i start the machine

i searched the bios for VT-x or vmx but i couldnt find anything, also updated my bios to revision 0701, but still couldnt find that option, they do say that my processor Intel® Atom™ N570 Processor has this technology though

does anybody has an idea how to activate VT-x ?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Intel® Atom™ N570 doesn't support VT-x as said here (Wikipedia) and here (Intel).

Quote from Wikipedia:

Neither the N550 nor N570 support Intel VT-x
