ESXi Windows 10 VM boot with UEFI BIOS

This post was originally published on this site

I’m trying to enable virtualization on my Windows 10 VM so I can use Docker WSL2.

Docker gives me this error:

“Please enable the Virtual Machine Platform Windows feature and ensure virtualization is enabled in the BIOS.”

When I enter the Windows 10 VM BIOS I don’t get the UEFI page, I get an old looking EFI page (image attached).

From here I cannot seem to enable virtualization.


My ESXI settings for the Windows 10 VM are set to:


Windows 10 VM:

    VM Options:

       Boot Options:

           EFI (selected)

           Enable UEFI secure boot (checked)


Any guidance on this would be much appreciated.
