Error: VT-x is disabled, but in BIOS it says enabled

OMEN by HP 880-137ng DT
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)



I want to install VirtualBox on my computer, but it throws an error:


VT-x is disabled in the BIOS for all CPU modes (VERR_VMX_MSR_ALL_VMX_DISABLED).


Result Code: E_FAIL (0x80004005)

Component: ConsoleWrap

Interface: IConsole {872da645-4a9b-1727-bee2-5585105b9eed}


I entered the bios, but virtual threading is enabled. What can I do more to make it work?


Best, Inga

Hi Inga,

You need to enable Virtualization in BIOS under Security > System security




You also need to make sure Hyper-V is enabled in Windows. Y Go to control panel and open Programs and features. Click on turn Windows features on or off and enable Hyper-V


Hope it helps,
