for Vaio VGN-FZ18M it's the same bios as the FZ180E -> R0050J7
Reg 02D3 set to 1 and ok
I am using Vaio VGN-FZ11ZR
I try so set reg 02D3 with
symcmos.exe -v2 -ucmos.txt
but when I copy cmos with
symcmos.exe -v2 -ln.txt
02D3 is 0000 again.
Does it mean that MSR is locked? How can I check this? Link to iso image in previous posts is broken.
What if I flash R0050J7 bios with vt enabled? Can anyone upload it?
Please make sure you are performing the operation from dos, and a cold reboot in between checks.
Thanks for answer!
First I tried to do this from dos. Got 02D3=0001 right after update. Then, when I turn off and on, notebook not booting. Shows black screen. After that, if I turn it off and on again it boots, but with 02D3=0000 again. I suppose it restore original settings after hang during previous boot.
But I tried to set settings from file made in windows - thats was the problem! I booted dos, saved file (noticed differencies in nearby registers), set 02D3=0001, update settings, turn it off and on, and... It works!
Thanks you all! Now I am happy with my notebook!
VGN-FZ11ZR, bios R0050J7, reg 02D3 - confirmed!
Here's another one:
VGA-TZ130N, bios R0052N7: reg 0363
Don't set 036C - that's the "brick" bit (aka the pull-the-CMOS-battery bit)
Anyone got a solution for the VGN-NR21(Z)
I bought this machine (last week) with the express purpose of using it to host 64bit VM's (Core2Duo T8100, 3gb RAM etc) and now find I can't To say I'm disappointed is an understatement
It's 2CD for my VGN-FZ290.
64 bit VM's are now running under with Linux Workstation 6 installed on Ubuntu Linux Deskop.
Thanks everybody for the tip.

Sorry but I do not write well in English. I have read how
you enabled on your vt notebok sony vaio fz18m. I can not explain you
step by step how you did. You would be very grateful. I set 02d3 = 0001
but always returns to 02d3 = 0000.
If you want I can give you my mail
Thanks dude! Just changed 02CD on my VGN-FZ290 and it worked like a champ! You guys ROCK!!!!!!!! Thanks everyone for the help!
Model: VGN-FZ290 / Core2 Duo / T7700 / 2.4GHz
BIOS Rev: R1120J7
symcmos -v2 -lcmos.sav
changed 02CD from 0000 to 0001 and saved
symcmos -v2 -ucmos.sav
ran secureable and it reports harware virtualization is locked ON. SWEET!
just to confirm that the register 399 works on a Sony Vaio VGN-SZ3HP/B with bios R0096N0. (I previously said it didn't but I must have made some mistakes on the way.)
Make sure you do EVERYTHING under DOS !
That means : don't dump the bios under windows then reboot under dos and put it back but :
Boot under Dos (freedos is ok, but be sure to not load Himem 386), dump under dos, edit under dos, and write back under dos, then cold reboot (power off/power on).
I had lots of problem because i was working with a dump made under windows, don't try, it won't work !
Also be sure to run under a light dos (be aware with the freedos bootcd to load the ntfs "module" to write the dump on your disk if you work with a ntfs partition)
Good luck !
I got a Sony Vaio NR21Z with a VT capable T8100 Core2 Duo.
