VMware is driving crazy after update.

Jump to solution

1 week after the migation of Windows 10 1909 to Windows 10 20H2, when I want to launch a VM, VMware says that I didn't have the XSAVE instruction, and cannot start the machine.

Weirder, in Windows 10 1909, this message didn't show, and it was running fine.

More weirder, after downgrading to VMware 15, it says that I didn't have AMD RVI hardware assisted MMU virtualization, but it didn't say that in VMware 16.1.2 !

It could be related to the processor is too old, but this message pops up since VMware 14, which my PC can run under Windows 7, and I have proof. 

So, why?

Hi,

Sounds like Hyper-V got enabled by Windows (there are many levels of Hyper-V, it might not be checked in the options, but still enabled anyways)

Follow the steps here to disable it:

Hello Wila,

It was effectively the Hyper-V Sheningans that acualy activated.

I disabled and it reworks.
