On page 2916 of this Intel software developer's manual, you can see that a hardware "hook" is provided that can allow a BIOS to disable or enable virtualization. VMXON is also controlled by the IA32_FEATURE_CONTROL MSR (MSR address 3AH). This MSR is cleared to zero when a logical processor is reset. ... Bit 0 is the lock bit. If this bit is clear, ...

Acer usually disables this option on ther mid-tier laptops. First of all try a BIOS update, later versions may have it enabled. If you want it enabled even if the manufacturer doesn't want you to, you can probably flash a modified BIOS, but this is VERY RISKY BUSINESS. You will probably void your warranty, may end up with broken notebook, get yourself a ...

For anyone who may still have this issue, I've successfully resolved it. The problem is caused by the fact that Intel Virtualization Technology and Hyper-V cannot run at the same time. There are several possible solutions, pick the one that best fits you: Completely disable Hyper-V in your system. This can be done either by opening Control Panel -> ...

Download the official Microsoft virtualisation checker tool. This will confirm whether VT-x is enabled. http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=592

Maybe your processor supports but its seems as far i can see your bios dont, look for the model of your motherboard of your manufacter webpage and download the latest bios update.

Intel Virtualization Technology (VT). Formerly known as Vanderpool, this technology enables a CPU to act as if you have several independent computers, in order to enable several operating systems to run at the same time on the same machine. In this tutorial we will explain everything you need to know about this technology. Intel’s virtualization technology ...

I don't believe that you can run Hyper-V within a guest as there is already a hypervisor running. (Pretty sure it tells you this if you try and install the hyper-v role). I think your just going to have to run these other machines on the host server.

This is not a duplicated question. What OP is trying to do is something like this: Host A(with VT-X support)->virtual machine B-->some applications need VT-X and getting VT-X support inside B so applications -- may be another VM or emulator -- running inside B, can take advantage of vt-x. Its called "Nested Hardware Virtualization", supported by ...

What solved my issue was using less than 3 GB of ram in the virtual box session. I was originally attempting to utilize roughly 6 GB. You are trying to allocate >3GB of RAM to the VM. This requires: (a) a 64 bit host system; and (b) true hardware pass-through ie VT-x.
