HP OS/Software :: How To Enable Virtualization On G71-340US Notebook

Nov 20, 2011

I have a HP G71-340US notebook  - PROD. NO. VM114UA#ABA running ubuntu 14.04. I was having many problems with the old Win 7 installation, so I converted to Ubuntu and did a clean install of Ubuntu 14.04. Since then I can't use VirtualBox for 64 bit guests. How do I enable virtualization so that I can use VirtualBox 64 bit guests mode? Whenever I try to set up a guest operating system on Vbox, it only allows 32 bit guests.  Everything I have read on this subjects keeps coming back to the fact that this machine is not supporting virtualization. I have been told to go into the bios and enable virtualization but I do not see that option in the bios.

Sony :: Enable VT (Virtualization) On The VAIO Series

May 5, 2009

As you are very well aware... attempts at enabling hardware VT by 'hacking' the Insyde H2O EFI bios have not gone very far. While these has been success (kudos to Igor Levicki for pursuing it) with the other series of VAIO, the Z series has not been hackable till date and thus one of the most important and supported/advertised feature of the included Intel processors (P8400, P8600, P8700, P9500 and P9600 -> All Supporting VT as indicated by their official Intel pages 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5)

Microsoft has just release Windows 7 RC (the best version of Windows, as claimed by some of the most popular blogs in the world) and one major feature in its toolset is the Windows XP Mode [url] and it is clearly indicated by Microsoft in their download page (Windows Virtual PC: Download) that for this important software compatability feature to work, hardware VT must be enabled and supported by the computer.

Since hardware VT is a feature of the Intel processors, us VAIO owners do not see Sony's logic in disabling it entirely without giving the owners of the machine any choice to enable it at a later time. Even if it is a unsupported feature as far as Sony goes, why cripple it? Why not have an option in the bios which would allow users to enable it by themshelves?

We hope that Sony listens to us and releases a bios update which either:Enables VT by default.Gives a option in the BIOS to enable it.This affects almost the entire lineup of laptops (not sure about desktops) in the VAIO series. Sony stands to loose nothing but rather gain another feature in its cap for being pro consumer and listening to the needs.

Acer :: Laptop With Phoenix BIOS: Enable Virtualization (Test Machine: Aspire 9420)

Mar 8, 2010

Since 2 years ago, I owned an Acer Aspire 9420. It is a 17" laptop with Intel CPU (Intel C2D T5600). According to Intel website, T5600 processor have Intel Virtualization Technology. However, for unknown reason, there is no option to turn ON Virtualization in the BIOS. Even Acer doesn't provide BIOS update that support this feature. My works involved VMware simulation & this prevent me from running 64 bit guest OS. Since buying another laptop seems not worth at all & Acer Aspire 9420 is a strong laptop to do heavy job, I'm determine, what ever it takes, I will enable Virtualization on this laptop.

For the past 2 years, I have working hard to achieve my objective. I has search & search in the internet and I found a couple of article about hacking the BIOS to enable Virtualization. This is a few forum's threads & articles I found:-

HP Envy Dv7-7398ca :: Enable AHCI Mode On Notebook With SSD

Aug 12, 2011

Year old i7 Envy Dv7-7398ca notebook with Samsung 840 Pro x 256 SSD.  Windows 8.1. I updated to the  SSD soon after I purchsed the notebook.   
 
No issues except the Samsung Magician SSD software keeps flagging me that AHCI mode is disabled and needs to be enabled and I do not see it in BIOS. Nor do I see anything that relates to it in Device manager like IDE or whatever. 
 
It appears the SSD is not optimizing itself based on the fact it thinks AHCI is disabled.

HP G71-340US OS/Software :: Getting Windows 7 Not Genuine Copy Message

Aug 27, 2014

Several years ago, I bought a HP G71-340US notebook with Windows7 (it was a refurbished model directly from HP). I have used it for mant years without real problems until last week. I am now getting on the bottom right side of my screen "Windows 7 build 7600 .This copy of window`s is not genuine" message . This is the same version that I bought from HP, though I have periodically updated Windows7 with Microsoft's updates. I called  Microsoft and they told me that I either needed to purchase the software again or give them my access code from the discs, which I didn't receive from HP.  What can I do to either get it to work or fine the Windows7 installation code?

Sony :: Virtualization

Sep 29, 2009

I'm thinking of purchasing an FW series laption. I called Sony technical support to ask if Win 7 can run XP compatibility mode, which as I understand it requires hardware virtualization to be enabled. The support technician said: "Recently we attended a brief training session about this. We were told that XP virtualization would run on Win 7, but you have to download a virtualization program from Microsoft." Does that statement make sense? Regarding this program you download, is this idea consistent with running XP compatibility mode as you guys understand that?

HP/Compaq :: Dv2 Hardware Virtualization

Dec 13, 2009

apparently, dv2 with Athlon Neo does support hardware virtualization.
On AMD site we find:

Processor:
AMD Athlon Neo Processor for Ultrathin Notebooks
Model Number:
MV-40
Frequency (MHz):
1600
L2 Cache Size (KB):
512
Socket:
ASB1
Manufacturing Tech (CMOS):
65nm SOI
Wattage (W):
15 W
Virtualization
Yes

However, dv2 with the latest bios (F.27A) has the virtualization disabled and of course HP doesn't give you any options to change that. Too bad, since that means that you cannot run a 64bit virtual machine or even WinXP mode in Windows 7 on this laptop.

HP/Compaq :: P7550 Virtualization

Aug 11, 2009

For those who've configured their laptops with the Core 2 Duo P7550, does this CPU have support for virtualization?

Information on this particular model is extremely scarce at the moment. Intel doesn't even have it listed on their site. I ask because Windows 7's Virtual PC and XP Mode require hardware virtualization support and I personally don't think it's worth the extra money to upgrade to a P8XXX series CPU just for it.

So P7350 and P7450 do not support virtualization but the P7370 does, so I'm guessing that the P7550 doesn't either and only the P7X70 models (which are only offered in HP's business laptops) have virtualization support.

Dell :: Studio 1557 For Virtualization

I am planning on buying the new Studion 1557 with the i7 CPU.

I would like to verify that with a Windows 7 Pro x64 as host, I can use VMware's VMware Workstation and Sun's VirtualBox for virtualization of both x64 and x86 guest operating systems.

If any one on this forum tried this, or know the answer, I would appreciate it very much

Acer :: Looking At An 1810t W/ C2D; Virtualization Enabled

Nov 7, 2009

I'm looking at picking up an AS1810T to replace my Samsung NC10 netbook and my HP DV8230US laptop.

I was looking at an MSI earlier due to its better warranty (3 years) and better price ($450 as opposed to $600)...but unfortunately, the lack of VT on the T6600 is a deal-breaker.

Does Acer have Virtualization enabled on the AS1810T? The SU7300 has it, but I want to make sure that there's nothing else that would prevent me from being able to use the laptop properly...as VMWare and XP Mode are requirements for what I'll be doing with it.

Sony :: Techs Say NO ONE Has Complained About VT (virtualization)

Mar 2, 2009

It seems that sony is telling people no one has complained about VT, and they have not received any calls.

If you feel that you have been given false info call and file a complaint because the canadian pages which i have printed and taken photos of dont' show any sign like the signapore pages which states vt is not supported.

-----
my new job requires we use VMWARE and on my sony well things didn't go well.

So i know that sony had it disabled in the bios..... So i Initiated a complaint via my mastercard stating how sony on their candian site when looking at the specs doesn't list that it is disabled and that u actually have to search the site etc...........

Acer :: Virtualization / Hyper-V On The Aspire 8920

Sep 17, 2008

I bought the Aspire 8920 from Best Buy here in Canada. You can view the specs of my configuration of the 8920 here.

I absolutely LOVE the laptop. I love high resolution; I love the Blu-ray drive; I love the 4Gigs of Ram; I love the 2 hard drives which give me almost 3/4 of a terabyte. Acer even sent me an additional power adapter and additional battery for FREE (I think the agent I was talking to was just having a good day). Everything about this laptop is awesome! Except one thing...

My configuration comes with the T5750 processor. It turns out that the T5750 doesn't support Intel Virtualization Technology. I've been intending on installing Windows Server 2008 as my primary OS so that I can use Hyper-V (I've heard great things about it, but I haven't really touched it too much yet), but I just found out that you MUST have a processor that either has Intel VT or AMD-V or else Hyper-V will not work. Currently I use VMWare Workstation for my VMs but I can't have any 64-bit guest OSs because of the same problem... my processor doesn't have VT. Don't ask me why I didn't research all this stuff BEFORE buying my new laptop... I'm still kicking myself for that.

So... onto my question(s). There are some configurations of the 8920 that have processors that support Intel VT (ie. T7500, T9500, etc.). I want to, again, upgrade to a machine that has a processor that I need... but I love the Aspire 8920 too much so I think I'm just going to get one of those higher configurations. However, there is a little problem. Intel VT comes turned off by default. The only way for it to be turned on is in the BIOS. I've read in several forums that a few manufacturers are either forgetting to add this BIOS setting or just not doing it at all.

Question 1) To anyone reading this who has an Aspire 8920 with a processor that supports Intel VT (Find out if your processor has VT support):
a) What processor do you have?
b) Do you know what configuration of the Aspire 8920 you have (ie. 8920-6671)?
c) Can you confirm if there is a "Virtualization" or "VT" setting in the BIOS?

Question 2) To anyone reading this that does a lot of virtualizing on their Aspire 8920:
a) What virtualization software are you using?
b) What guest OSs are you running and what are you using them for?
c) Do the VMs run well for you?

Question 3) Since were somewhat on the topic, is there anyone that has some experience with Hyper-V and virtualization under Windows Server 2008; and if so, what are you personal opinions on it compared to other virtualization solutions out there?

Acer :: VT Hardware Virtualization In Travelmate 8000 Series

i'm searching for a notebook, and so far, the Acer TravelMate 8471-944G32N Timeline seems to be exactly what i need. however, i really have to have a notebook that supports hardware virtualization/intel VT. the CPU does support this, but i've failed to find info on the web whether the mainboard and BIOS support this feature too on the notebook. acer support hasn't managed to deliver me an answer in three tries now.

so, is anyone here who knows the answer or who owns one of these notebooks (or a similar one) and can try it out?

Acer :: Aspire 8930G Hardware-Assisted Virtualization

Jul 12, 2009

I'm running the Windows 7 RTM on my Acer. One of the main things I was excited about in this build was the Windows XP Mode, which requires the use of the Virtual PC 2007 Beta in conjunction with a specialized add-on (both are available for download here).

Well, long story short, the Virtual PC installed with no problems. The Windows XP Mode module also installed, but when it tried to run I got the following error:

"Virtual Windows XP could not be started because hardware-assisted virtualization is disabled. Please enable hardware virtualization in the BIOS settings and try again."

I got on the phone with Acer Tech Support--yes, the guys who charge money for their services--and although they tried their best, the only solution they really gave me was to update my BIOS from version 1.00 to version 1.13. To no one's surprise, that didn't help.

My processor is an Intel Quad-Core Q9000, which according to both the Intel test utility I got through Microsoft and Securable, my processor supports this function. Securable even wanted to run a deep-level check and see what was preventing it from running, but for some reason it said it couldn't function properly in a 64-bit environment, so I'm still in the dark.

In my BIOS there appear the following options at the top of the screen: Information, Security, Boot, and Exit. That's it! No Advanced tab, and no options even remotely pertaining to the processor.

Is there any way to make what I hope are simply hidden Advanced BIOS options visible?
