Running Windows Server 2008 on an Acer Aspire 5100
Posted on 2009-04-03
I've installed Windows Server 2008 on my laptop. An Acer Aspire 5100.
I've managed to install Hyper V to run virtual machinnes, but when I try to start my newly created XP-machinne I get an errormessage saying something like this:
"The virtual machine could not be started because the hypervisor is not running"
A friend of mine pointed out that it could be something with the powersettings in BIOS, but I couldn't find anything in BIOS to change.
So I decided to update my BIOS from 2.30 to the latest 3.13. But when I try to flash it I get the following message:
cannot load driver
Please check your accounts, if you have no administrator
privilege, please login agai!
the driver has been blocked from loading
Error code: 1275
Can anybody help me with this? I have access to all versions of windows through Technet incase I need a XP-CD or anything else!
I can add that this is just to try out Server 2008, that's why I will try it out on my laptop!
