<-not solved. HP Pro 6405, AMD - V enabled in the BIOS, but win7 pro 64 bit, it detects not

So, I have virtualization enabled in BIOS, and I tried like hell to get the Microsoft HAV tool to detect. This isn't.

VirtualBox does not detect it either. In fact, the tool from AMD (AMD-V_Hyper - V_Compatibility_Check_Utility.zip) does detect too.

It's the broken BIOS from the manufacturer?

Isn't it necessary a patch applied to Microsoft to fix this, or is HP responsible for setting their own products via a new updated BIOS?

And, before you post a reply, Yes, I went to the BIOS, security options, the value of virtualization "activated", recorded and then turns off the PC for 30 seconds before restarting it.

I get emails asking me what was my solution...

Here it is:

I replaced it with a completely different PC. I took the original piece of crap, loaded by default, and he sold to one of my clients who didn't need the service VM.

I ordered and based on Intel 3400 Pro series, compatible Intel VT - x and it worked right out of the box.

I lost too much valuable time on this AMD System. It is broken,

To HP, you and your technicians have no idea how to solve this problem, because it cannot be resolved. I will not replace more motherboards, processors and any other nonsense you keep sending me to Exchange. This model is broken from the outset and I advise anyone who has to ask for a RMA and replace the product Intel.

So this is my solution.

  • HP X 360: hardware virtualization enabled in the BIOS but not detected by the installation of Intelhaxm.exe

    Hi all

    I'm trying to get Android studio works on my 360. Everything is fine until you try to run virtual device/emulator.

    This does not work because the Virtual Machine is required. When I looked in the BIOS I was surprised to see this small handbook has the functionality that has been disabled.

    I now activated but still not detected by the software. Can anyone help with this?

    See you soon

    The problem was Avast antivirus. I uninstalled and hey presto, intelhax went very well.

  • Satellite Pro A200 - HDD recognised by the BIOS but not in the startup list


    After some problems with the virus of my laptop is not able to start more. How reset BIOS ignores the boot from the HARD drive and try to start either from CD or network. The HARD drive is recognized by the BIOS (it appears as 1 hard drive in the home page). In the selection screen startup list preferences appear only floppy drive, CD/DVD and network.

    The hard drive can be mounted and browsed without any problem of windows or Linux. I tried to install both systems and the installation always succeeds but when rebooting the system is not able to boot from the hard drive.

    I guess it's a BIOS problem, but I'm not sure about this. What do you think?

    By the way how do I update the BIOS without having neither windows nor floppy drive?

    Thanks in advance

    Hi mate,

    I m a bit confused now as a first step, you wrote that the computer can boot from the HARD drive, but then you t wrote you browse the HDD with Windows and Linux

    I'm not sure this is the problem of this but I recommend to load the default settings in the BIOS.

    If your HARD drive doesn t work could be defective (bad sectors or something else). You could test with special diagnostics as Drive Fitness Test Tools. It s a freeware tool so you can find it using Google.

    By the way: have you tried to install Windows with the Toshiba Recovery disk?

  • HP Elitedesk 800 G2 SFF: external hard drive not detected in the BIOS. Only USB Flash drives are detected.

    Hi all

    I received recently 2 new HP desktop computers.

    HP Elitedesk 800 G2 SFF

    HP Elitedesk 800 G2 TWR

    The goal is to test our real W7 x 64 image on these machines and to inject the missing drivers in the image.

    MDT 2010 to create a deployment on a USB hard disk drive.

    This disc of deployment is already used on 16 different models of HP in the company (Elitebook, zBook, EliteDesk) to install our image so I know it works.

    Unfortunately, the two HP Elitedesk 800 G2, I can't start the boot disk but I cannot to USB for a USB key.

    The USB drive is not detected and not proposed in the BIOS Menu of STARTUP.

    Only the internal HD, external USB Flash Disk, DVD and network devices are detected.

    Here's what I already checked or tried:

    • Latest Version of the BIOS installed (2.05)
    • UEFI Boot has been disabled. (not supported by our record of deployment)
    • USB ports are enabled (front and rear).
    • All types of USB devices are allowed in the BIOS
    • The start command has been changed to start with USB devices.
    • Legacy support is active and Secure Boot disabled
    • Delete the keys to secure boot
    • Reset secure by default startup keys
    • This morning, I created a new disk deployment on a USB Flash drive and it works!

    So, it seems that only Flash USB drives are detected.

    I know it is possible to return the flag removalble on a USB device to cheat the system and make it appear as a disk fixed, but I want a simple solution.

    Does anyone know a fix or a workaround for this problem?

    Thanks in advance!

    For those interested in the answer, here's the final results.

    It turns out that the hard 500 GB external drive can be detected if it is fomatted in FAT32.

    It's strange because my 16 GB USB Flash drive formatted in NTFS works very well.

    In any case, I'll create a FAT32 Partition to the Boot MDT files and put my picture (because the file is too big for FAT32 partition) on the secondary partition (formatted as NTFS).

    Thanks to the technical pre-sales team of HP who helped me with this!

  • SATA Drive is recognized by the BIOS but not Disk Manager


    I'm having a little trouble with a PC, my father gave me. He was still under Windows XP, I formatted his 5 ready for my use SATA drives, then I installed Windows 7. When I finished installing the BIOS recognized the correct readers, I created a JBOD Volume, but Disk Manager does not recognize. I tried different tables without tables, restart, reinstall Windows 7, formatting the disks to the format of the ODM using my laptop and try to find an updated driver (impossible even to find any drivers online).

    Please could someone give me some help?

    I use 5 Hitachi SATA disks

    Here is my system info:


    Thanks for posting your query on the Microsoft Community.

    According to the description, I understand that the SATA drive is not recognized in disk management.

    I suggest you to refer to the suggestions by Anil Kumar B responded on 7 September 2013 and check if that helps.


    Note: Changing the BIOS / semiconductor (CMOS) to complementary metal oxide settings can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from starting properly.

  • Recognized by the BIOS but not by Windows 7 disks

    I have 4 internal installed hard disks that worked well up until the other day.  The first is my main C: drive.  The second is my main data with several patricians disc. Then, I have two drives more who serve backup online and archive.

    When that I start my computer, the BIOS reports all four drives are present, but for some reason any Windows 7 seems not be recognizing the last two.  They are not classified in management of the discs, even on a new analysis and won't come when I try to scan for missing devices using Device Manager, where they are also not listed.

    Someone at - it ideas why this might be?

    Hi enormouse affect,

    1. you did it any software / hardware on the computer before this problem past?

    2. What is the number of brand and model of the computer?

    There are several possible reasons that the hard drive is not recognized.

    ·         Missing Chipset drivers

    ·         Hardware failure

    ·         It is an IDE drive, and it is in the wrong state (master / slave)

    ·         It is disabled in the bios

    Determine if the hard drives Sata or IDE. Go into the bios and see if the disks are disabled by accident. If you have verified all of this, and the drive is still not recognized, download the latest drivers from the website of the manufacturer of your motherboard chipset. Try to change the mode from AHCI to IDE in the bios.

    Note: Changing the BIOS / semiconductor (CMOS) to complementary metal oxide settings can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from starting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the configuration of the BIOS/CMOS settings can be solved. Changes to settings are at your own risk.

    Let us know the status of the issue. If you need help, please after return. We will be happy to help you.

    PS: An Information System .nfo file is located here. Please, if there is no serial number I ask you not to use them for illegal purposes, for example, HP supports, saying that my computer is stolen, etc.
