Dell E6500 virtualization BIOS settings

Do you have Any experience how virtualization related BIOS settings work In Dell E6500? I am using VMWare Workstation 6.5 and do not see any option to turn those “magic features” on.

"Dell Latitude E6500 virtualization BIOS option

With BIOS A11 on the Dell Latitude E6500 with the Intel T9600 CPU, if you want to enable the Intel VT extensions so VMware Workstation can run a 64bit VM, you need to have the 'Trusted Execution' Virtualization BIOS option set to OFF.
If you have it set to ON, the VMware CPU check says that the CPU supports 64bit but is turned off on the BIOS.

Some more discussions on this Dell community thread.
You should check your processor model too."
