It seems that I don't have virtualization enabled, because when I try to start a 64-bit virtual machine, Virtual Box says that VT-x is not available. However, when I go to the BIOS and try to enable it, I can't find where the setting is. My BIOS version is PRG3110H.86A.0071.2010.0318.1704. I checked the processor's info page and it supports VT-x.Any help?
Thanks in advance.
If your board's BIOS supports the enabling of VT, it will be in the BIOS Setup Security menu. Use to enter BIOS Setup, hit the key until Security is highlighted and then the key until the Intel Virtualization Technology parameter's setting is highlighted. Press to activate the selection dialog and then select Enable. Remember to save settings when you exit from BIOS Setup...
Hope this helps,
Hi, thanks for the reply.
I do have an option "VT Technology", but it is already set to "Enable", so I was looking for something else with "virtualization" in it. Anyway, the option is enabled and I still get "VT-x not available" from Virtual Box.
What else may be causing this message?
Well, that and VT-D (for console redirection) are the only settings that the BIOS might have for virtualization. If it is set to enabled and the processor truly supports VT, you should be able to use it...
