How to Enable Intel Virtualization Technology (vt-x) on HP Pavilion dv6-7043Cl notebook

Product Name: Pavilion dv6-7043cl
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

I want to Enable Intel Virtualization Technology (vt-x) on my HP Pavilion dv6-7043cl Notebook. But I'm unable to find the option in my BIOS. It only shows option for enabling/disabling Virtulization Technology but not VT-X. My processor is capable for Virtualization Technology (also checked with Intel processor identification utility) but I'm unable to find the option to enable vt-x on my Notebook. I also update the BIOS version to F.2E. Can you please help?

Boot into your BIOS.

 

You should be able to Enable it there.

Here it is the machine info!

 

I've also tried going with default BIOS settings but it didn't fix!

From your snapshot of your BIOS it looks like it is ENABLED.

Thanks for your response.

 

Actually i was unable to install Windows Server 2012 R2 in Oracle VM Virtual Box with windows 8.1 (being my Host machine). The problem just fixed by installing the latest version of Oracle VM Virtual Box.
