This host supports intel VT-x, but the intel VT-x Implementation is incompatible with VMware workstation / player

I'm having some issues getting vmware workstation and player to launch my VM on a DO ubuntu 14.04 x64 droplet . I keep getting this error message;

This virtual machine is configured for 64-bit guest operating systems. However 64-bit operation is not possible. This host supports intel VT-x, but the intel VT-x Implementation is incompatible with VMware workstation. I actually tried the player first, same message just with "player" - figured there was only support for it in workstation.

It then references the hardware/firmware reqs for 64 bit OSs http://vmware.com/info?id=152 for more info.

I know this works on other VT-x systems.. maybe an issue with nesting VMs on DOs side? any ideas? I'd really like to start using DO for some lab environments.

Thanks!
