VM-100, ESXi, Module 'CPUID' power on failed

L1 Bithead

Trying to get a VM100 to power on with an ESXi host. 


This is a HP EliteDesk 800 G1 i5.  I'm getting the message that Intel VT-x is available but it might be disabled.  However, I know hyper threading is enabled in the HP Bios.


Tryig to run Palo 8.0.8 --- second installation and I'm still getting the same thing.  Anybody have any ideas?  Thanks.

Hi @anthony.goethals


Did you check if VT-x is enabled in the BIOS?





Thanks for getting back, but yeah, I did find it in the BIOS.  It was just hidden where I least expected it.


I had found the hyerthreading option and thought that was it, but until I went deep into the Security option in the BIOS, I didn't find the hyper-v settings.  It's all good now, though, thanks!
