I am a new board user. I posted the following in the Bios Mods Forum Didn't know about this Forum I would like to use the HP a6230n to support VMware or Virtual Box. My Bios as reported by Universal Bios Backup Toolkit 2.0 is AWARD /ACPIv2.0 V 5.13 [10/29/2007]. My CPU AMD Althlon 64x2 Dual Core 5600+ supports HW vituality called AMD-V by AMD. The current Bios doesn't allow enabling/disabling AMD-V. AMD-V is required to use VMware/Vbox to host a Guest OS. The motherboard as reported by Speccy is ASUS NARRA2. The chipset reported by Speccy is NVIDIA MCP61 rev A3 Southbridge. The motherboard elsewhere is said to be ASUS M2N68-LA [NARRA2] The chipset is also said to be NVIDIA GEFORCE 430 with 6150 graphics on the board. Sorry if I have messed up the nomenclature.. Questions: Can I mod the bios to support the CPU's AMD-V capabilty? If so, How would I enable/disable the AMD-V feature? If the answers to these questions is no,you cannot; is the solution to purchase a replacement BIOS that works with my computer[works with this motherboard?]? I don't know if the current BIOS is soldered to the board yet. I think I can do all except unsoldering the bios[if that is necessary].
