Welcome to the Community,
VT-x is a BIOS setting, and should not depend on the installed operating system.
Did you check whether you can find this setting in the BIOS?
What type/model of notebook is it, what built-in CPU, and which BIOS version?
Thank you, André.
You were right; it does NOT depend on the installed OS. I thought it was very strange when he told me that, and it was.
I didn't find anything in the BIOS specifically referring to VT-x, but I did find a Virtualization Technology setting. And guess what, it was disabled! I enabled it and I am now able to play the virtual machine.
However, I'm now encountering the same issue I had with VirtualBox. I was hopeful that I could avoid it by using VMware, but no such luck. The text on the VM screen is so tiny that I can barely read it. I can make it out with effort, but it's pretty much unusable. Do you have a solution for that?
Do you have a solution for that?
This sounds as if you are using a large screen resolution on the host. There's unfortunately no option to stretch the VM's screen, which would be very helpful in such situations. The only option I can think of is that - in case your's using a graphical console window within Linux - there's an option to change the font size in that window.
Yes, my screen resolution is 3840 x 2160, which seems pretty amazing for a 15-inch screen, but that's what's recommended by the manufacturer.
Thanks for your reply. Wish there were a better solution.
