Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Previously, if the NX flag was not checked in the BIOS of certain Intel CPU types, which require NX as well as VMX to support virtualization, the deployment script for the hosted engine would not accurately detect the CPU type and the deployment would stall. Now, the user is prompted to check the NX flag in the system BIOS if the CPU type is not accurately detected, and the deployment exits gracefully.

Works for me.

[root@alma03 ~]# hosted-engine --deploy
[ INFO  ] Stage: Initializing
          Continuing will configure this host for serving as hypervisor and create a VM where you have to install oVirt Engine afterwards.
          Are you sure you want to continue? (Yes, No)[Yes]:
          It has been detected that this program is executed through an SSH connection without using screen.
          Continuing with the installation may lead to broken installation if the network connection fails.
          It is highly recommended to abort the installation and run it inside a screen session using command "screen".
          Do you want to continue anyway? (Yes, No)[No]: yes
