How to enable virtualization

HP Recommended
HP Compaq Elite 8300 sff

Hi, I've a hp compaq Elite 8300 sff with Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3470 CPU @ 3.20GHz

Serial Number:[edit]

Product NO.:A2K86ET

My SO is Linux Centos 7

I would check in my BIOS settings as well to make sure that it is enabled there because in my /proc/cpuinfo flags line does now show 'vmx' as present.

I start with ESC and F10 option but I dont find a setting in there about Virtualization so make sure that is enabled.

What can I do?

Hardware specification tell me that Virtualization Technology is supported

If I see right datasheet ... -3-60-GHz- Intel®

Virtualization Technology ‡ Sì

Now Virtual box allow me to create 32 bit machines only.

Thanks in advance.
