  1. My athlon II X2 255 processor doesn't have virtualization even tho it says it does. Gets like a ..._NO_SVM error when trying to run a virtual box virtual machine. Latest firmware too. Should have gone with intel. Any ideas to turn it on? Disabling it in the bios gives a ..._SVM_DISABLED error.

    Discovered the remedy from a poster on another forum. Had to uninstall the windows virtual machine feature hyper v, which grabs exclusive control of the amd virtualization, looking like you have none. I guess it works as advertised. Asrock motherboards rock.
