Help! Bios don't have the options!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi I'm new here, I don't know if this is the right place but there it goes my problem..

I recently bought a notebook with windows 7 ultimate so looking for the features of the windows 7 I saw the WINDOWS VIRTUAL PC(not the Virtual PC).. So I downloaded the windows xp mode directly from the microsoft site and when i opened it.. it says that i dont have Hardware virtualization enabled (OR INTEL VT) ENABLED... So i looked for if my processor does support it and it does! It's a core i3 but the bios don't have much options (almost nothing in the advanced menu).. I can't even set the shared memory for the integrated graphic card! So I want to know if i can CHANGE/UPGRADE/HACK the bios or EDIT and if it's safe or i can f*** up my notebook... By the way my BIOS is AMI APTIO (worst bios evar) if you guys need more info i can give and sorry for the bad english

>>EDIT

and i know there is a hotfix but i want to enable it directly from the BIOS so i can have more performance working with the VM.

I am not bothered about any VT that is completely unimportant feature ..
I NEED ADVANCED MENU Options unlocked ..
Thanks.

1. Do you have windows virtual pc on your system?

2. I hope you sourced your copy of XP LEGALLY, as downloading as far as im aware, is illegal.

3. Once you have the disc / ISO of windows XP, you install virtual PC, then, in the options of the program, you set up a portion of HD space (say 40gb) and that sets that aside for the virtual pc, then in the instructions, it will tell you to insert the disc/ISO taht you LEGALLY obtained.

Tonnes of info on virtual pcs on the net (:

Hope that answered your question

**EDIT**

I may have misunderstood the question though, But the above answer, is my answer to how I interpreted your question.
