HP Zbook 15 63
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I am running W10 Pro and want to enable Hyper-V.  However it says it needs to be enabled in firmware.

I went into the BIOS , under Security , and don't see an VT enable /disable listed.  Also, checked online whatever I see recommended doesn't match the option /settings in my BIOS.  

 

Does anybody know ?  Seems I don't need a BIOS upgraded, checked and its the latest.

@Naomi_wilde:

If your laptop has the same bios as my Elitebook 840 G3, VTx setting should be in System Options. Go into F10 BIOS -> Advanced -> System Options and scroll down past Turbo Boost and Hyper-threading settings and you'll see Virtualization Technology (VTx) option.

@naomi_wilde -- that "VT" option speeds-up input/output generated by a Virtual Machine.

Are you sure that there is NO option to "enable virtualization", and then another option to "enable VT" ?

 

Some other Virtual Computer software packages do not require "Hyper-V".

I needed VT enabled because I wanted to do some testing with W10 Pro Hyper V. 

Found the VT setting all good now. THANKS
