BSOD with WSL2 on t14 (amd)


A link for fixing the BSOD when running WSL2 on a t14 (amd)

I have to use windows for a couple of days, and it showed a BSOD when booting after activating WSL2

Update: This bug also prevented me from upgrading to windows 11. The fix below fixes this as well!

One workaround is:

bcdedit /set hypervisorlaunchtype off

but that means that I get to see a

WslRegisterDistribution failed with error: 0x80370102

when starting wsl2 / ubuntu.

The answer is described in https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-T400-T500-and-newer-T-series-Laptops/BSOD-when-using-Windows-Virtualization-Platform-WSL2-on-T590-T490/m-p/5034580?page=1#5125424

"Disabling "Enhanced Windows Biometric Security" in BIOS Setup -> Security -> Virtualization menu will solve this problem\..."

After having done that, I could turn the hypervisor back on

bcdedit /set hypervisorlaunchtype auto start

No more bluescreen, and ubuntu on windows 10. Thanks 'someotherguy'!
