This is my primary attempt to construct Win7PE

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

Hi experts,

I'm a fresher to WinBuilder as well as this is my primary attempt to construct Win7PE.

After that the construct is done as well as I attempt to run it by using the VM Player. But I received the following error message.

Win7PE SE – VMwarePlayer

You have configured virtual machine to use a 64-bit guest oprating system. However, 64-bit operation is not possible. This host VT capable but VT is disabled. This is usually because VT has been disabled in the BIOS/firmware settings or the host has not been power-cycled since changing this setting. Please:

(1) Verify that the BIOS/firmware setting enabled VT and disabled trusted execution.

(2) Power cycle the host. if either of these BlOS/firmware settings have been changed.

(3) Power cycle the host, if you have not done so since installing VMware Player.

(4) Update the hosts BIOS/firmware to the Latest version.

For more detailed information, see

Continue without 64-bit support?

Yes No

I am using Windows 7 Enterprise (32bit) – German Interface.

I've attempted it with English Interface similar version as well as I received the similar error.

Source edition: Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit.

This is not entirely an error message but a warning message. You can still click Yes to continue but there would be certain stability issues with your new built Win7PE

It is a rising simply because of the fact that you have attempted to create a 64-bit VM on a machine running at 32-bit operating system as the host. That is why it is giving you this warning.

The solution is to create a 32-bit one, not a 64-bit one. On the other hand if you deliberately want to do this then I would suggest upgrading your BIOS firmware (as also stated in the warning message) That may give better support to the system in such a situation.
