searching1, I assume you are talking about SVM (Secure Virtual Machine). Please open your UEFI - Advanced - Processor Settings and enable SVM. I have an ASRock MB and use it to run Hyper-V. Your names may be a little different. If you have more questions, please post your system specifications. Enjoy, John.
Hi Misterj, Thank for your response....
Mistyped SVM, I have enabled SVM (Under MIT tab, then Advanced Frequency Settings and then Advanced Core settings). But still on my vmware workstation "IntelV/amdV checkbox option is greyout.
searching1, that sounds like the correct settings, but you gave no more information on your system. If you are running W10, then I suggest you try Hyper-V. It has been some time since I used VMware but at the time it had a utility that examined these settings and let you know what was needed.
If you are not running W10, I probably cannot help, since I know almost nothing about Linux. Check your task manager, as above. Enjoy, John.
EDIT: I suggest you post on the VMware forums.
Heres what im currently using.
- Gigabyte B350 Gaming Wifi Mini ITX
- Ryzen 3 1200
- Primary OS Ubuntu
Tom, I'll check it on OS side and update here.
searching1, I do not know what this means: "Tom, I'll check it on OS side and update here." Can you boot W10? I checked the manual and it looks like you set the correct setting in the BIOS. I assume you did a Save and Exit. You might try a "Load Optimized Defaults" in the BIOS. SVM is supposed to be the default. Perhaps a Linux person can tell tell you how to inquire the SVM setting in Linux. Enjoy, john.
