Re: How to disable hardware virtualization

To do this try to perform the following steps.
  • From command prompt as administrator and starting as we need privileges.
  • Then we copy our current boot entry to another name such as "Windows VHD BOOT"
bcdedit / copy (current) / d "Windows VHD BOOT"

Now with our boot bcedit we list for our new post Now we set our virtual disk.

C: \ Windows \ system32> bcdedit / set
hd = [E:] \ Virtual Machine \ XP 2 \ XP.vhd
The operation completed successfully.

Re: How to disable hardware virtualization

When we pass a physical machine to a virtual machine, or change virtualization software to a VMWare virtual pc or other alternartives, our team may not start because of all the hardware changes that suffers from migration. To do this we can tell that you start with a layer of hardware abstraction using generic hardware.
