I use Hyper-V as my virtualization platform, and my VMs are running flawlessly with Ryzen. I first flashed the BIOS to the most recent to F5d, enabled AMD SVM, or AMD-V, then I was able to hypervise my Windows 10 OS. I had to import my VMs from a system that were running Intel, and Hyper-V was smart enough to know that processors had changed, so it just completely shut down the VMs during the import instead of "resuming" from hibernation.
I take it you will run just fine with other virtualization platforms such as ESX or VMware Workstation. Just make sure your BIOS is up-to-date since every BIOS update right now is crucial for Ryzen.
saywhut Thanks for your reply, and it was very helpful.
I saw some issue report on online posts titled "AMD Ryzen with VMWARE ESXI - A PINK SCREEN", i am not sure if it is due to some specific bug on M/B or M/B FW or Driver.
(1) Did you face any issue like that?
(2) Secondly have you tired using Pass-through Video Card (in Ur case AMD Radeon RX 480 x 2) with VMs?
I haven't had a single issue running my VMs using Hyper-V so far.
I can't speak for ESXi, however just because one person got a pink screen doesn't mean you will. The only way to find out is to try yourself.
I do not use video pass-thru for my VMs as I need RDS setup. Maybe one of the things it lacks that VMware has.
I have the same Mobo/CPU configuration which I just built:-
- Ryzen 7 1800X
- GA-AX370-Gaming 5 (rev. 1.0)
Either I must be going blind or stupid, but I cannot find anything in the BIOS Settings to turn on the Virtualisation, ie AMD-V.
Wonder if you could let me know how you got it working.
I know it needs to be enabled because neither Virtual Box nor the Hyper V will install, saying that virtualisation needs to be turned on.
Bios Version : F4

update your bios (i think it's F6 currently), that should have the IOMMU setting for virtualization
