Ryzen 7 X2700 - Not detecting 64bit host

Reported by: Timur Owned by:
Component: VMM/HWACCM Version: VirtualBox 5.2.10
Keywords: Ryzen Cc:
Guest type: all Host type: Windows


On windows 10 Pro x64 running a Ryzen x2700 VirtualBox does not correctly detect it is running on a 64bit host, as a result only 32bit guest machines can be created. This applies to both Windows/Linux guest machines.

Please go thoroughly through the FAQ:  I have a 64bit host, but can't install 64bit guests, replacing VT-x references with AMD-V. Remember, those are guidelines, you have to use your judgement...

Also, search the webs for "AMD-V Ryzen". Several BIOS manufacturers don't enable the virtualization capabilities (AMD-V) by default.

Finally, can I suggest something? It's usually better and faster, if issues get first addressed in the  VirtualBox forums. More than 95% of the issues are resolved over there, which keeps the developers focusing on the bug fixes and enhancements, and there is no need for another ticket to keep track of. For example, yours is not a bug and someone from the developers has to deal with it and close it as "Invalid".
