Actually I want to run VMware on my Windows 8.1 PC but it says error that only AMD-V supports virtualization. But I am Unable to See/Use AMD-V on MSI A75 Motherboard with AMD A8-3850 APU in BIOS Settings Page. [img]http://i.imgur.com/Z5DzXSl.png[/img]

Any solutions? I think I need to update the BIOS. Will that give me the option to enable AMD-V?

I am getting the following error on starting OS X Mavericks -

VMware Workstation --------------------------- The CPU has been disabled by the guest operating system. Power off or reset the virtual machine.

I implemented line from http://minhdanh2002.blogspot.in/2012/07/fixing-cpu-has-been-disabled-by-guest.html cpuid.1.eax = "0000:0000:0000:0001:0000:0110:1010:0101" But it didn't work.
