How do I enable VT-X?

I was designing games in unity with some friends but none of us have a Mac so none of us can download the Apple SDK. To use the SDK, we will have to run a virtual machine with OSX on it. Virtualization is disabled on most PCs by default and I was wondering if there was any way to change that without rebooting into the BIOS. If not, how would I change it in the BIOS?

Look for the "Virtualization" or "VT" option in your BIOS and enable it. You'll normally have to do this before the Operating System boots.

You don't need VT to virtualise unless you're running a 64 bit VM on a 32 bit system. I'd note tho that you can't 'just' install OS X in a VM on a windows/linux system since it detects that you're running on hardware that isn't made by apple.

Of course, there's ways to but hackintoshes are out of the scope of superuser.
