Thinkpad X250 - Intel virtualization permanently disabled

Hi all,

 

I'm trying to enable Intel's virtualization technologies VT-x but the option is [Disabled] and grayed out in the BIOS. I can't move in the options to enabled the options.

I've tried to see if there is any BIOS update, but everything seems to be up-to-date.

Any hints on how I can proceed? The llaptop still has a valid warranty. Should I contact Lenovo support directly?

 

Thanks,

Hi iperdomo, and welcome to the Lenovo User Community!

 

Is a BIOS Supervisor password set?

I don't work for Lenovo. I'm a crazy volunteer!

Hi bananaman,

 

When I try to use the BIOS setup it ask for a password that is blank, just <ENTER> let me in. I have set a password for hard disk, not sure if is related at all.

 

How do I know if my blank password is supervisor or not?

 

Thanks for your reply.

After rebooting I think that is my problem. The boot password is not the Supervisor one.

Thanks for the hints.
