Enable Virtualization in BIOS after that Windows 8 won't start RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello!

    When i enable virtualization in BIOS, after that Windows 8 pro won't start. Freeze at the windows logo.

    My PC:

    Gigabyte GA-MA790XT-UD4P (latest BIOS)

    AMD Phenom II X4 B50

    8 GB RAM

    120GB SSD SAMSUNG 840 series

    I read, there were some problem with gigabyte motherboard's  USB 3.0 controller, but i haven't got USB 3 port. I can't disable it.

    I tried "cold boot" but it is not worked.

    What should i do?

    Thanks for replies!

  • No, it's an Phenom II X2 550 BE, but i unlocked 4 core. But i tried to make back and nothing else changed.

    But i find the solution:

    1, Downgrade BIOS to version F7

    2, Clean re-install Win8 pro

    3, Enable Hyper-V in windows

    4, Enable Virtualization in BIOS

    Now it works, thanks for reply Andre!

  • AMD Phenom II X4 B50 sound like you use an AMD Athlon X4 and unlocked the L3 Cache to mod it into a Phenom X4. Disable this mod/unlock in the BIOS.
