Activate APIC on HP Elite 7300 Microtower

HP Recommended
Elite 7300 Microtower
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I am running windows 10 enterprise on a 2.gen i-7 with 16GB RAM.

I am trying to install a x64 virtual machine with Virtualbox. On mounting it asks for APIC.

How can this be activated on a Elite 7300?

@Gazdok 

You sure you're not confusing this with ACPI?

 

ACPI is the standard for power saving, etc. etc. etc. implemented by Microsoft, which you will find in Windows. Go ahead. In you device manager, you will see that all your devices use one IRQ. THAT IS CALLED ACPI.

APIC is an option in your BIOS that stretches your IRQs from the standard AT of 15 to about 23 or 24, so that all your devices don't use one IRQ. THAT IS APIC.

 

IF you don't see it in the BIOS options, you don't have it.

Thank you for the replies.

 

It was definitely APIC which I cannot find in my BIOS.
