Hello guys 🙂
I have problem with my new workstation HP 285 G2 ...
it is with CPU AMD A8 PRO-7600B with Radeon™ R7 Graphics (supports VT) , but I cant enable VT from BIOS ...
It is not in System Security .... there are only two options there :
1. Data Execution Prevention;
2. TPM Features;
The BIOS Version is E11 vA0.11
I've Googled that problem but without result ...
I've Googled for new BIOS version, but the latest on the net is A0.07 ...
So how can I use my workstation for real work with virtual machines ?

That is a very good question. The AMD A8 PRO-7600B APU does have virtualization technology as a feature.
According to the Maintenance & Service Guide on page 56, that feature can be enabled in the System Security tab. The manual does say that the options are hardware dependent. I am not certain which hardware options make the features available.

Yeh I saw that info but I think that this is not serious to have Business Workstation that can't use VT ...
And the other thig is how that PC is with BIOS version A0.11(28.08.2016), but HP.com latest BIOS version for it is A0.07 (24.03.2016) or A0.05 (25.03.2016) ... I did't get it ...
