How to enable Intel Virtualization technology

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

HPz840 (Dual Xeon E5-2696 v4 @2.2Ghz

64GB ram
Windows 7 64bit

Bios Version: M60: v02.54, 12/06/2020


I've recently come across  a scenario where the advised solution is to ensure Intel Virtualisation Technology is enabled. I've installed the Intel Processor identification Utility and indeed Intel VT is compatible with the Xeon 2696, however the only information I have been able to find regarding enabling this is on a HP notebook thread and my BIOS is different. (See attached)

Does anyone have any information or suggestions on how to enable this on a HPz840 with an up to date bios please, I've searched everywhere and can assure you the setting simply isn't there.

Thanks in advance
