Can't boot with Intel VT-D enabled, since build 17025


  • Since build 17025 Windows will freeze at boot (logo, no "loading" animation) if Intel VT-D is enabled in the BIOS settings. (Xeon W3690)

    Any hint? Is it a known issue?

  • Announcing Windows Server Insider Preview Build 17074

    "UPDATE 1/18: Today we have released Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17074.1002 to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring. This build is the same as the version of Build 17074 released last week with 2 additional fixes. We have fixed the issue causing AMD PCs to become unbootable – which means we have removed the block for AMD PCs we put in place last week. And we also fixed the issue causing certain devices to hang on the boot screen after upgrading if virtualization is enabled in the BIOS."

    So appears the build yesterday might address that, have you got that one?

  • Good news, downloading now.

    However, I was able to boot with "Virtualization" enabled. It's just the specific VT-D feature that froze the boot.

    Let's see how it goes and I'll let you know.

  • Unfortunately no, the new build didn't solve the issue.

  • Ah ok, seems it is a problem. Looking in Feedback hub others seeing the same it appears. (Feedback hub link so will ask to open in that)

  • Same here with Asus P6X58D-E mainboard, I can't use virtualization anymore, the system doesn't even boot if VT-D is enabled.

    This needs to be fixed ASAP, virtualization support has been broken for the longest time.

    Support is a joke, they told me to do a clean install.. seriously Microsoft, get your shit right.

  • Same issue in 1903 also. I want to use the widely advertised Hyper-V emulator in my Xamarin Visual Studio projects, but as enabling VT-d in my bios prevents Windows booting then I can't use the emulator.
