I used to use virtual machines on my laptop all of the time with no issues. Suddenly, that's changed.
Before you mark this as a duplicate, every single other question about this gave an answer that didn't fix my problem.
YES, the operating system and processor are 64 bit.
YES, this is Windows 10 Home edition. Hyper-V is not even an option to turn off, and I have used bcdedit to turn hypervisorlaunchtype off.
YES, I have restarted multiple times changing different settings.
YES, my hardware supports virtualization; I have used virtual machines on this machine before.
YES, I updated all software.
Whether virtualization is on or not, it DOES NOT CHANGE and the 64 bit options are not visible.
It might be noteworthy to mention that when virtualization is ENABLED in the UEFI, I get an error that "raw mode unavailable courtesy of hyper-v" and when DISABLED the virtual machine actually boots into Xubuntu (but obviously gives an error that a 64 bit processor is needed for a 64 bit os). I do not know why it boots when virtualization is off, given that it usually needs to be on, but either way it's not working.
