Access The Windows BIOS Setup With Ease
A creation of Windows, the virtual machine is simulated and runs within the Windows itself, but it doesn’t mean that it doesn’t have the features or powers of the actual computer having a physical existence. The Basic Input Output System (BIOS) is a similar type of a low level component and has its existence in the virtual machine also.
Features or settings of normal BIOS like the system time, IDE configuration, system lock, power management, ACPI, user password and boot device sequence can be changed and viewed via the Visual Machine’s BIOS too. It gives the same privileges as its physical counterpart.
The Windows Virtual Personal Computer (WV PC) comes equipped with the AMIBIOS. Its predecessor the VPC BIOS was modified and changed by hackers to perform the OEM activations crack. In the Windows VPC, the authority or permission to access the setup utility of BIOS has been skipped because of the latest integrated and enhanced features which provide resource and device sharing between the guest OS and host.
It also brings on additional features like automatic logon to the guest Windows Operating System and the automatic publishing of the installed applications. Therefore, if we have to access the Windows VP’s BIOS configuration, then we have to disable and switch off some features like Integration Features for some time.
On the boot up process, the virtual machine performs the power-on-self-test (POST) with a black background. Press the Del key at this juncture and you will be allowed to access the setup utility of the virtual machines BIOS.
The above mentioned POST sequence finishes pretty quickly, so it is advised that the Del Key should be pressed in time in order to access the settings utility. After you finish accessing the system, just enable the integration features again and help the features get started again.
