    I'll post the modified BIOS image when it ready (based on BIOS v1.17). Your notebook have AMD Turion 64 MK-38 CPU, right? For the mean time, please make sure your notebook can recover corrupted BIOS with CRISIS disk.

    I found out that BIOS ver 1.17 doesn't support virtualization. So, I use BIOS ver 1.19 instead. It is available at acer europe support website. With ver 1.19, virtualization is enabled by default but I'm still unlocked the VT menu in BIOS setup menu.

    This is modified BIOS image for Acer Aspire 9300. It is based on BIOS ver 1.19. Only LCD Auto Dim & Processor Assisted Virtualization menu are unlocked. There are no other advanced menu found.
