HP Bios troubles

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion Desktop PC 570-p0xx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I need to activate virtualization to use in the VMware workstation, but I can't because Bios on my PC  cut down in functionality. Can I do something to activate it, or modify bios to open functionality to set "virtualization" (Vx-t) on?

Did you look under "System Security" in the bios? That's where HP hides the virtualization settings! I looked for hours before I found it (HP Z440).

 

Good luck!

As far as I know -- no.

Sorry, but accessing Advanced BIOS option on HP PCs is not possible.

Some OEMs lock out the advanced BIOS options to prevent customers from making changes to options that can destabilize or otherwise damage the PC -- and then send it back for repair under warranty claiming they did nothing to it.

I know only SOME of the advanced options are risky, but it's simpler to disable access to ALL advanced options than to allow/disallow on an individual option basis.

That's the course of action that HP has chosen.

 

We also do no provide any support on modding HP BIOSs.

Thanks a lot for this information. I didn't even think it could be there
