Secure Virtual Machine causes BSOD

Question asked by swanvods on Feb 21, 2020

Recently, I installed VirtualBox for Linux courses. When I tried to install Linux on VM, it freezes. I restarted my laptop and BSOD appeared with stop code: DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION.


I asked my friend and he told me to disable SVM on the BIOS to make my windows work normally.

But without SVM, I can't run or install any Virtual Machine. Then I'm trying to re-enable the SVM and my laptop had a long boot time and then BSOD appeared again with the same error code.


I tried to do a clean uninstall of VirtualBox and enabling SVM again and then My windows work normally. I wonder there's a conflict between VirtualBox driver and AMD SVM.


I have ACER Aspire 3 A315-41 with specs :

Ryzen 5 3500U

AMD Radeon Vega 8 Mobile Graphics

8GB DDR4 Memory

Windows 10 Education x64


Does anyone have any ideas?
