Enable Virtualization on HP ProBook 4530s

I tried to install HyperV on my new HP ProBook 4530s but it fails with error message: hyper-v is disabled in the firmware.

I enabled the parameter virtualization technology in BIOS but it still fail, the solution was to change BIOS Security Settings from View to Change for virtualization.

Thx. I had done this but until reading this post had not realised that the 'Hypervisor is present' feature did NOT need to be starred in Coreinfo. Provided that the SLAT / EPT feature is enabled/starred.

For anyone else as ignorant as myself, this only gets enabled by the installer ;-)

Ciao, puoi spiegarmi meglio cosa hai cambiato nel BIOS per risolvere il problema? Io ho un ProBook 4540s e quando installo Hyper-V al riavvio si blocca in eterno. Ho abilitato la virtualizzazione nel BIOS e niente altro. GRAZIE!!

Hi, can you please explain better what you've changed in the BIOS to solve the problem? I own a ProBook 4540s and when I install Hyper-V the following reboots hangs forever. I have enabled the virtualization in the BIOS and nothing else. THANKS!!

You must enter BIOS, then go to System Configuration, Select Virtualization Technology menu and set value to "Change"

Hi, I've tried this, but it was not enough. Everything works fine UNTIL I install the bluetooth drivers... in that case the boot sequence hangs forever or, in my second installation, I even receive the BSOD! At the end I formatted the pc and installed all the drivers except the bluetooth and everything's fine.

I had to make the following changes in BIOS in order to make it work on my HP 4530s
1. System Configuration > Device Configurations > Virtualization Technology <-- ENABLE this
2. System Configuration > Set Security Level > Data Execution Prevention <-- set to Change
3. System Configuration > Set Security Level > Virtualization Technology <-- set to Change
