Further to the meeting discussion, here's more of my thoughts on lack of 
VT-d support.

Many of the myriad Intel CPU SKUs lack various misc features (without much 
rhyme or reason IMHO).

Many CPUs specifically lack VT-d support.  Notably, in the i7 line, the 
"K" suffix CPUs lack VT-d.


look under "advanced technologies" and you'll see VT-d is "No".

I'd check once again on both your invoice and in the BIOS to see if your 
CPU # ends in a K and/or if your CPU # when looked up on Intel's site has 
"No" for VT-d.
