Cannot enable virtualization on Elitebook 2570p with dual core I-7 processor

HP Elitebook 2570p W/ Core I7
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I am trying to install VMware Workstation and linux which requires Virtualization to be enabled.

During boot I press F10 and enter BIOS and when I try to edit BIOS settings they are grayed out and cannot be edited.

 

How can I access them for editing or is there some other way to turn on Virtualization?

Hello @MikellB,

 

Welcome to FORUM !!!!

 

The reason its Grayed out is because , You have not logged in to BIOS as the administrator and logged in as a user.

Hence you go do have enough privileges.

 

Login in BIOS > Security > User management> Create admin password.
