activating vt-x from bios

Hello,

 

I need to use virtualization under VirtualBox to run windows server 2008 64 bit

For this VirtualBox notify me that I need to activate vt-x from my bios.

When I went into the bios, I haven't found anywhere where to activate it, but when I went to the hp site to check if my HP ProBook (I'm running HP ProBook 4710s series) I found that it supported virtualization.

So could anyone tell me how to activate it?

 

Thanks in advance

Hi,

On boot press F10 to enter Bios.

 

Go to:

System configuration -> Device configurations

 

find there "Virtualization technology" and choose enabled. Press 'Enter'  key to Save it.

 

Go to:

File - > Save Changes and Exit and choose Yes.

Another thing you could try is If your running Windows 7 and If you care to try the Win XP Mode instead of Virtual Box, you can use VMLite. VMLite is software based on virtual box code that is made specially to run XP Mode and still retain oll of the XP Mode intigration features that you get if you run XP Mode with the recomemded microsoft software : "Virtual PC"

 

XP Mode running under VMLite does not reguire vt-x or AMD- V to run. VMLite also has tons of feature that Virtual Box or running it with Virtual PC does not have.

 

People who do not have support for vt-x and wish to use XP Mode will find this a god send.

 

This software is free. but you must register to download.

activating vt-x from bios

Hi,

I'm having the same issue.

Using a 4740s Probook. The option is blanked out in my BIOS. I can't enable the function?

 

Will a BIOS upgrade solve this?

 

Thanks,

Johan

It might be best to post in the business forums found here.

 

Consumer model notebooks typically label this as virtualization in the system configuration section of BIOS, but probooks may handle this differently since they target a different audience.

activating vt-x from bios

I have HP Proobook 4340s and the operating system is Windows 8 Pro 64 bits. But when I enable

Virtaulization Technology (VTx) in the BIOS, so after that the computer can´t load the Windows operating system. I don't get any kind of error messages.

 

The bios version is F.40, 29.01.2013

 

With coreinfo -v I get the information, that the computer´s processor should support Virtaulization Technology (VTx)

Can someone help me with this issue?

I understand your probook fails to load Windows 8 after hardware virtualization is enabled in BIOS.
 
You may want to visit the business support forums found here.
 
You could ensure that secure boot is disabled and legacy mode is enabled in BIOS as this could be interfering with the boot process.
