Does my DELL support hardware virtualization, and is the BIOS setting turned on?

Turn on your DELL and :
  • Press the F12 key when boot menu text appears at startup
  • Select BIOS setup and press the Enter key
  • Using the mouse, expand the Virtualization Support menu item by clicking on the plus to the left of Virtualisation Support and
  • Select Virtualisation
  • Check the Enable Intel Virtualisation Technology checkbox
  • Click Apply
  • Click Exit
  • Fully shut down (power off), wait a few seconds, and restart your computer ( IMPORTANT!!!!)
Please note that if you could not find the Virtualization Support menu, either your machine does not support Hardware Virtualization or the BIOS is not updated. Go to and under Drivers and Downloads, using your machine service tag, check if you have the latest Bios version. Be carefull when updating your machine BIOS.
