Notes on Setting BIOS for the HMT VM

  • Windows 8 and 8.1: see this page with instructions for editing UEFI BIOS (from Acer)
  • Windows Vista: restart the computer and look in the upper-right corner of the screen; very briefly, instructions will flash by, telling which function-key to hold down to enter the BIOS settings.

The setting that needs to be enabled goes by the following names: VT-x, Intel Virtualization Technology, Vanderpool Technology.

Known successes and failures

  • HP Elitebook with Windows 8 works?
  • A Dell Inspiron 1420 cannot run a Vagrant VM.
