I want to enable Virtualization on my new HP Spectre x360 in order to use Virtualbox. Virtualbox currently gives me the following error: "VT-x is disbaled in BIOS." Easy enough. I went into BIOS and enabled Virtualization but upon reste\art the computer would not boot. I got the following error: "Boot Device not found: Install an OS on your HD." No other settings were changed in the BIOS. So I went back into BIOS, restored the default settings and now the computer starts normally and everything is fine, except of course that Virtualization is still disabled. I repeated the process and the same exact issue occured again. Anyone know if there is a trick to enable virtualization on this or what the problem may be?

I'm sure you found the answer by now, but in case you haven't you have to change the UEFI settings. To do this, swipe from the right side and select settings. Hold shift, press power, and restart. Continue to hold shift. You will come to a screen to change UEFI settings, click there and look for Virtualization, it is disabled by default. I just enabled it on an HP Spectre x360 to install Ubuntu on VMware Workstation.

I am having the same problem. I tried holding the shift key and restarting like was said in the post after yours, but all that got me was locked out of my computer and had to restart normally.
I am having problems with everything on my computer freezing. Everything from Microsoft office products to internet explorer. Some days I spend more time waiting for things to respond than I do working. Updating the BIOS was one of the things that was listed to fix this, but I am not able to figure out how to do so. It says that it is not enabled on my machine.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
