I tried installing Mint 14 in a Virtual Machine and got this message.<
Note that I have another VM with Debian and it works just fine!
VT-x/AMD-V hardware acceleration has been enabled, but is not operational. Your 64-bit guest will fail to detect a 64-bit CPU and will not be able to boot. Please ensure that you have enabled VT-x/AMD-V properly in the BIOS of your host computer.
I can understand that message, the problem is that my computer is recent and has UEFI instead of the conventional BIOS. I have no idea how to access UEFI. I tried rebooting and checking for a key to press, there is none!
The firmware I seem to have is an American Megatrends and that's all I know. My motherboard is an ASUS P8H77-V R.
