HP Z8 G4
Linux

Brand new HP Z8 G4, with dual "silver xeon 4114" CPUs.

These CPUs support all the requisit functions in order to run a hypervisor.

The Qubes-OS install complained that the hardware lacked VT-x, VT-d, EPT, and interrupt remapping (VT-d again??)

 

My guess is that the BIOS disables this for a workstation.  That would be a poor choice.

 

Is there a secret option to get to the really advanced settings page?

Is there a version of the BIOS which enables these?

 

I am on BIOS version "P60 v01.42 02/26/2018".

 

How do I contact someone in HP who could influence features in future BIOS updates?

Hi,

 

You should be able to enablre virtualization which is disabled by default. It will eiter be in the section security under System security or under tab advanced under system options.

 

You might need to set an administrator password to modify.
