The google is not strong in this one. If I search for "GHES: HEST is not enabled", the second hit shows me that "GHES" is "APEI Generic Hardware Error Source support".

thanks, unify with this other:

i have a general view, now i try to understand what means and why the error occurs

EDIT: i haven't yet fully understand from where come these features and where they go, but i think are hardware related feature......
reading here http://www.kernel.org/doc/Documentation … meters.txt
