This article will discuss how to enable virtualization (AMD-V) on Ryzen processors. Enabling virtualization on Ryzen processors is not a difficult task. That goes the same for most other processors on the market. All the Ryzen processors that I am aware of have AMD-V. This is AMD’s virtualization technology that allows it to dedicate processing power isolated for a virtual machine. Most PCs out of the box have the virtualization setting disabled in the BIOS. For AMD, this is a quick change that involves a simple process, outlined below:
- Restart your computer
- Press the hot key for getting into your BIOS
- Use your BIOS search function and type in SVM
- Click on SVM Mode and select Enabled
- Save and Exit
That’s all that’s needed! The pictures below provide for more details.
