Hello guys. I am an HP Probook 4430s user.
I just want to ask if this laptop version enables Virtualization.
If not, then how can I enable it?

It is said that Virtualization is usually disabled by default computer manufacturers.
And I am not sure either how to check whether it's enabled here or not.

I am hoping for an answer in regards with this. Thank you so much in advance!

Enter BIOS while startup. Somewhere in the BIOS settings, you can find "Enable VT" or "VT Enabled". Just make it "YES". (VT = Virtualization Technology)

You may find the below link useful:
(I didn't try the application, 'securable'. Try it at your own risk)

If you are using a mac, try this in your terminal:
sysctl -a | grep machdep.cpu.features
if you can find VMX in the output, then VT is enabled.


Thanks for the reply but I don't know what nested-paging is.

Thanks! I've learned that Virtualization is not enabled in my pc and i'm trying to enable it now. Hope to succeed. But then I still don't know how, coz I couldn't find the setting which will make it possible in the BIOS.


I enabled the parameter virtualization technology in BIOS but it still fail, the solution was to change BIOS Security Settings from View to Change for virtualization.


I already found it.. My problem is that whenever I got to the BIOS I couldn't find he ystem Configuration, but when I tired to log in as a guest, I fainally got the access to change my BIOS setting. Now, I have already enabled Virtualization in my HP ^^
Just make sure to turn off your computer after enabling, turn it on again then it will work.

Are you working on virtualizing your pc too?


@caperjack, thanks!

I finally made VMware work on my pc. I have already installed MAC on it.
