Enable hardware virtualization in BIOS

I'm trying to launch a virtual machine on virtualbox, but this needs hardware virtualization enabled in my bios (it says to me).

 

I have an HP Pavillion a6347.it with Intel Core2 Quad Processor Q6600, where the hardware virtualization should be possible (read this: http://ark.intel.com/products/29765/Intel-Core2-Quad-Processor-Q6600-(8M-Cache-2_40-GHz-1066-MHz-FSB... ).

 

How can i enable hardware virtualization in my bios??? :smileysad: 

 

Thanks for all your support, I'm italian excuse my bad english please :smileywink:

Hi,

 

Please read this

There is an example in there for HP machines.

Re: Enable hardware virtualization in BIOS

I have already read the page, but the HP instructions doesn't match with my bios. I need more specific support or an alternative way to enable virtualization.

My bios is the same you can see in the images at this link (BIOS version 6 or lower): http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00005356&tmp_task=setupCategory&cc=it&dlc=it&la...

Re: Enable hardware virtualization in BIOS

If you have the option for Hardware Virtualization, Virtualization Technology, or Hardware Virtualization Technology it should be located under the Power options tab. Other options that can be found under Power options include "After AC power failure", "NX no execute", S5 max power savings", and "WOL in S5". If you do not see the Virtualization option under Power, look through all of the options tabs. If you can't locate the Virtualization option anywhere in your BIOS it is likely that it is not supported by your computer.

Re: Enable hardware virtualization in BIOS

I had to make the following changes in BIOS in order to make it work on my HP 4530s
1. System Configuration > Device Configurations > Virtualization Technology <-- ENABLE this
2. System Configuration > Set Security Level > Data Execution Prevention <-- set to Change
3. System Configuration > Set Security Level > Virtualization Technology <-- set to Change

Re: Enable hardware virtualization in BIOS

Holy Cow!  I've been searching for quite some time for a way to turn virtualization Technology on for a Pavillion 500-c60.  The option turns out to be under Security>System Security in the BIOS. 

 

I'm putting this message here because I have not found this setting anywhere else.  Thanks for the topic.
