Recently I bought one new laptop Lenovo Idea Pad S400 ultra book laptop. After installing Windows 8 OS and VM ware I tried to install Windows Server 2012, but I got an error message saying ‘VT Disabled’. As an I.T professional, VM Ware Workstation Windows Server 2012 is essential for me. So I googled the problem and came to know about Intel VT (Virtualization Technology). In order to run Virtualization we should enable VT in the bios of our machine. Here are the simple steps to enable virtualization in bios.
Enable Virtualization Technology (Intel VT) In Bios of Lenovo Laptop
Error Message in VM Ware
While rebooting the laptop, enter to the system Bios by holding ‘Function + F2’ keys
Go to ‘Configuration’ tab, and look for ‘Intel Virtualization Technology’. Most probably it may disabled. (Refer the image below)
Enable it and hit ‘F10’ key to Save and Exit.
After booting up you are able to install Virtual Machine via VM Ware workstation.
The same procedure is also applicable for almost every lap top in the market.
