I am running a FOXCONN AM2+ M61PMV with an AMD Athlon II X2 240 Windows 7 ultimate 64 bit.

From startup I have hit the del key and the options for enabling the hardware virtualization are not there. I have checked the Microsoft tool that says I can run virtual and i have checked SecurAble, that says yes. But I have an open case w/microsoft (they've been trying for a week [7 tech support people later]) and they're saying that I need to ensure that the hardware is enabled.

Where do I go to see? Is there another way besides from the startup?

I've just had a look through your mobo manual (alternate link) and there is no option in the BIOS for switching on the hardware virtualisation.

Also, the descriptions of the BIOS updates available do not mention anything about adding support for virtualisation.

It looks to me like the mobo unfortunately does not support it.
