Re: Y580 Enabling VT-x

On my Y470, I have VT-x enabled by default. Try to look into your BIOS again and see if you can find something that says "Intel Vanderpool Technology". That's the VT-x option.

Lenovo Y470: i7-2670QM | 8 GB DDR3 1333 MHz RAM | Nvidia GeForce GT 550M | 500 GB 7200 RPM Seagate HDD | ASUS PCE-AC56 802.11ac Network Adapter | Windows 7 Professional 64-bit

Re: Y580 Enabling VT-x

In older BIOS versions here's where it was.  I have a suspicion that something has changed with the Windows 8 compatible BIOS.  Don't have the Y580 any more to check Smiley Sad  This is from the 480/580 BIOS simulator - which isn't up to date Smiley Sad

 

@ Y580-Nathan,  I take it you've already tried running your VM app and it says VT is off?

Re: Y580 Enabling VT-x

@cbautis2 : I have looked all over the Bios settings and did not find anything at all like that. Seems like the current BIOS is hiding that option @zoltanthegypsy: yup, VMware is installed on my system and I can install any 32 bit OS, however, when i tried to install 64 bits OS like Server 2008 R2 for example, it threw this type of error: "VT is capaple but VT is not enabled".

 

BTW, can you show me how to do screen grab of the BIOS like you did?  it would be convenient to do screenshot and show to you guys what the BIOS setting is

Re: Y580 Enabling VT-x

Sorry, I probably wasn't clear.  That snip is from a BIOS emulator running in a browser window.  It isn't from an actual BIOS screen.

Re: Y580 Enabling VT-x

All you have to do is press F2 to get into the bios.  Once you get into the bios go to intel Virtualization which will be disabled, and enable by pressing enter. Once it is enabled it will be good to go .

Re: Y580 Enabling VT-x

Hi.
I stumbled across the same problem trying to run 64bit guest os in VirtualBox in Win 8 host os on my Y580.

By default VT-x is disabled on that PC.

Steps to be taken:
While Y580 is booting press F2.

Goto Configuration -> Intel Virtual Technology change value to Enabled

 

Link to image


Bios Version: 5DCN39WW(v 2.06)

 

And everything works fine.

 

Regards,

Marcel

Re: Y580 Enabling VT-x

I can't enable virtualization here. My BIOS version is 5DCN40WW (v 2.07) and when I try to enable, it simply does not.

 

I go to the BIOS, enable Intel Virtual Technology and save the settings, but it doesn't work and when I go to the BIOS again it says it's disabled.

 

To be more specific, I have a japanese Y580 (model 209973J), the one with 1TB HDD + 32GB SSD. I've also updated to Windows 8 and separated the hard drives, so I have Windows 8 installed in the SSD and everything else in the HDD.

Re: Y580 Enabling VT-x

I am having the same issue on my Y580, when I try to enable the Intel Virtual Technology setting it just does not save.

Has anyone been able to find a solution?
