    I just bought a server with Intel motherboad and intel processor. I also
    enabled hardware-assisted virtualization in BIOS. After installing windows
    2008 server, I tried to add a Hyper V role, it is giving me an error and
    does not let me add.

    Is there any work around?

    See the error message below.

    [Window Title]
    Add Roles Wizard

    [Main Instruction]
    Hyper-V cannot be installed

    Server Manager has detected that the processor on this computer is not
    compatible with Hyper-V. To install this role, the processor must have a
    supported version of hardware-assisted virtualization, and that feature must
    be turned on in the BIOS.
