However, in order to do this, your system processor must support hardware virtualization (AMD-V or Intel-VT) and also need the corresponding option to be activated in the BIOS (if not available a BIOS update may help).
The HAV (hardware-assisted virtualization) detection tool from Microsoft helps you check whether your processor supports hardware virtualization and also checks if this feature is enabled on the processor.
You can also use the tool SecurAble to find out whether your computer is capable of running a virtual machine. The tool works with Intel and AMD processors. Just runs the tool by double clicking the icon, if you got a ‘NO’ as the result, the only thing that can help is changing CPU.
