I am trying to run an x86 Android Virtual Device using Intel Virtualization Technology and VT-X. These features are required for the emulator to run correctly. However, I can't seem to get it to work.
The very strange thing about this is that the OS always appears to contradict my BIOS settings. When both features are enabled in the BIOS, Windows thinks they are unavailable:
On the other hand, when they are both disabled in the BIOS, Windows thinks they are available. Unfortunately I still can't start the emulator despite the OS thinking the features are available, since they are effectively disabled in the BIOS. Under these circumstances, I get this error message when I try to launch the emulator:
Starting emulator for AVD 'x86_10-inch' emulator: device fd:1096 HAX is not working and emulator runs in emulation mode emulator: VT feature is not enabled, HAXM not working. creating window 0 0 845 528
Sometimes, after restarting what appears to be an infinite number of times, I randomly get it to work. I'm sort of at my wit's end, this problem makes working really inefficient. Any help would be really appreciated!
To clarify, pure emulation is not an option. The only way to achieve decent speed is to use HW virtualization. When everything randomly works correctly, I am able to launch the virtual device with HW virtualization and it works pretty well.
