Preferred Solution: Enable virtualization etc

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have a Toshiba Satellite C 660 laptop. I downloaded a tool called securable that shows that virtualization is supported but locked off by bios. But I can not find any Virtualization option in bios. Can you tell me how can I enable virtualization. My bios version is 2.00
 

A:How to enable virtualization?

Enable virtualization on Toshiba Satellite - Have you tried these tools?:Tool: Microsoft Hardware-Assisted Virtualization Detection Tool - Test for Windows 7 XP Mode Compatibility : VMblog.com - Virtualization Technology News and Information for Everyone GRC*|*SecurAble: Determine Processor Security Features*|** The stuff that I read showed that the Intel processors supported virtualization - and that the newer AMD processors support it also.But virtualization support depends on your specific model.NOTE: Your CPU may support virtualization, but the option has to be built into the "specific model BIOS".Other than that, I'd have to suggest installing VMWare in order to see if it works.

I have this problem also on  an Ideacentre 720 18ASU.  After spending over an hour with tech support, it appears that the BIOS has no selection to enable virtualization.  Windows 10 task manager says it is disabled.  Why would anyone not want virtualization enabled on an 8 core processor?  Running virtualbox in 64 bit mode is one of the reasons I chose this computer over less capable ones.Is there any way to enable this?  Is a bios update in the works to do this?The machine has the appropriate AMD support chips, so it should be hardware capable.

Well, I did search the forum for some other posts on this, but some say also replacing the mobo's necessary, other posts don't say that.

I've got a yr old Pavilion with Intel Core2 Duo CPU [email protected] 2 Core Logical Processor(s). Intel's website doesn't quite list this anywhere on their website, instead it lists one as Intel? Core™2 Duo Processor P7350 (3M Cache, 2.00 GHz, 1066 MHz FSB) which of course is NOT capable of virtualization (which's a prime reason I installed W7).

As for "processors", I thought I did my homework, because I thought 'the processor' was the CPU (and I'm guessing most laptops and desktops have only one CPU, no, or am I off on a tangent)?

'Neverthemore', does anyone know if it's feasible to simply upgrade the 'processor(s)' to one that's capable of virtualization?

FYIO - The machine was running Vista (until clean installing W7 Pro's System Builders Pack, again 32-bit).

Lastly, since the HP laptop's latest current BIOS is their F55 and doesn't list a 'configuration' setting for "enable virtualization", apparently another BIOS would be in order, once the 'processor(s)' is upgraded, so dose any know if the BIOS must be an HP one and/or how one gets a BIOS that affords the "enable virtualization' setting?

A:'Upgrading' CPU to enable virtualization

are you truly stuck on xp mode or can you roll with virtualbox? might be a worthwhile replacement for xp mode and you won't have to fork out any money for a new processor (and motherboard).

A:Ideacentre 720 Enable virtualization

If there is no option under CPU configuration to enable "SVM Mode", it is probably going take a BIOS update to be able to configure that feature.    According the the Psref for that system, Lenovo chose to use the rather choked down AMD B300 chipset, so that may part of the problem.  There is a bios update on the website (version O38KT22A) but unfortunately Lenovo chose not to include any release notes in its readme.txt files, so there is no way to tell what the update addresses, so I guess they expect everyone to call support to find out if the BIOS update is worth the risk. Good Luck,

Let me set up my situation:
I am running a Lenovo laptop that I just recently upgraded from Vista Home premium x64 to Win 7 Pro x64. The custom install came off with no glitches; however I am very disappointed to find that I cannot turn on hardware virtualization using the BIOS setup program (Phoenix 15CN34WW V. 2.07) that Lenovo offers. This in spite of the fact that I had verified the processor (intel p8600) supports virtualization. The main reason for investing in Win 7 Pro was to be able to run XP mode and VM in order to use some older x32 bit programs that I sorely miss. Before the upgrade, I had used Sun Micro's Virtual Box (Free) with no problems at all.. worked like a charm.

My Question:
Do you know of any way I can turn on hardware virtualization on this machine? 3 calls to Lenovo tech support finally ended in a candid admission by a supervisor that they do not know how to solve the problem... Phoenix passes responsibility to Lenovo etc.. Microsoft doesn't offer any help...

Reboot the notebook. 2. Instantly press F10 to enter bios. 3. Check the settings and look for Intel Virtualization Technology (Aliases: Intel VT-x). 4. Turn is on and save and exit.

Hi, Rapidly tapping the ESC key after power on should get you to Startup Menu and from there you can select Computer Setup (bios). If you can't get to the Startup memu using the ESC key then you will need to take a longer route to get into the UEFI settings.  Review this procedure. The below image is reflective for the Leeds motherboard in your PC. There is not a lot of differences between the below image and that which Paul had posted.  You will need to change the Disable to Enable and then save the settings. The other changes will require Windows 8 Pro or higher and also to enable the function under Turn Windows Features On or Off.
