Hi,
I need to install 64 bit 2008 in an EXSI where I previously installed 32bit 2003. When I trying to install the 64bit OS it prompt to enable VT in the BIOS.

If I enable VT in BIOS, for the Host machine did the 32bit OS will work or not.

thanks,

Hi Mahin Al Rasheed,

VT extension increases ESXi performance, and enables some other features, functionalities. If you enable VT extension on your Intel 64Bit ESX / ESXi host, you can install both 32Bit & 64Bit Guest OS. It doesnt matter if it's Windows, Linux OR Solaris.

Thanks
