BIOS update and VMWare

HP Recommended
HP Envy 13 inch
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi,

I'm trying to use VM Ware and Fedora 34 with my HP Envy running Windows 10 64 bit. However I get a message telling me to update my BIOs. I have the latest BIOS, so that's not helping. The message also tells me that I may need to enable VT-X in BIOS but I don't see that option in BIOS. Can someone help? Please see photo below.

I'm sorry, but HP does not provide support for Linux distros.

IF you replace the preloaded Windows OS with a Linux distro, or add a Linux distro, then you assume full responsibility for maintaining that -- including solving any problems with booting the other OS and/or installing the other OS.

Modern PCs with UEFI, instead of the older BIOS, are especially difficult to install because you have to go into the UEFI settings and make several changes before you can even boot from a USB stick -- and we are unable to assist in that work.

Your best bet for support now is to contact the support forum of the distro you are using.
