L440 enabling Intel® Virtualization Technology (VT-x)

2019-10-07, 14:15 PM

Trying to enable VT-x so I can use Docker for Windows

 

both The CPU and the Chipset support VT-x

https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/76348/intel-core-i5-4200m-processor-3m-cache-up-to-3-10-ghz.html

https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/75531/intel-hm86-chipset.html

 

and the option appears in the BOIS, but I am unable to select it to set it to enable.

 

Any help appreciated, been stook on this for a bit and google has not helped :)

Are you able to toggle other settings in BIOS?  Any chance you have a password set that's keeping things in read-only mode?

Hi, thanks for the reply.

 

I could not remember if I had tried anything else and did remember a padlock icon before entering the BIOS just pressing return got me passed it.

 

I Have just done a quick test disabling hyperthreading, booting into windows, checking logical processors down to 2 from 4 as expected.

 

I know this is not in the security tab but the only option there is VT-x so I thought another Intel CPU tech would be the closest match.

 

As far as I know, I am on the latest BIOS, having had run the Lenovo System Update recently and have just check again.

 

 

Thanks again :)

Same thought:  your "..did remember a padlock icon.." indicates that BIOS has a password.  You'll need to enter that to be able to change some of the settings.
