Fixing – kernel: kvm: disabled by bios

Intel Virtualization Technology switch in BIOS

On my HP Z210 workstation (Hewlett-Packard HP Z210 Workstation/1587h, BIOS J51 v01.47 07/18/201) I was annoyed and also bothered with the following error in journalctl -b:

kernel: kvm: disabled by bios

So I rechecked over the BIOS and finally found the location of the Intel Virtualization Technology switch under Security > System security

After reboot finally without the ‘kvm: disabled by bios’ error 🙂
