Hardware assisted virtualization is not present when trying to setup Terminal server services in a VM

Hi,

We originally setup small lab environment for Terminal Services on Server 2012R2 in a Hyper V.  1 Dc, 1 TS. and it was working.

Then I exported the pair of VM and gave it to another tech to work on but when he was trying to setup the TS, he got an error saying "Hardware assisted virtualization is not present"

What would be the reason it won't work now? does the VM need to be started from scratch?

Thanks,

Start the machine in BIOS and make sure VT-D virtualization support is enabled. Not set will cause this.

It's VT-x (Hardware Virtualisation), or Intel VT that needs to be ENABLED. Intel® Virtualization Technology (VT-x)

Intel VT-d is something completely different which ,may or may not be a function in the BIOS/CPU or motherboard.

VT-d is VM Direct Path I/O or PCI Passthroug (Intel® Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O (VT-d))

You cannot enabled (or may not even have!) VT-d, unless you enabled VT-x, two different functions!

VT-d is often found on Xeon processors
