BIOS

In order for Secure Data Layer to work, some settings need to be enabled/disabled in BIOS.

Virtualization Technology
This needs to be enabled for the system to run. On computers with Intel-CPU’s it’s called VT-X and on AMD-CPU’s it’s called AMD-V.

How to enable on Intel-CPU’s:
Once in your BIOS or UEFI settings, look for VT-X, Intel Virtualization Technology, Virtualization Extensions, Vanderpool or something similar.

How to enable on AMD-CPU’s:
Once in your BIOS or UEFI settings, look for AMD-V, AMD Virtualization Technology or Secure Virtual Machine Mode.
