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 http://www.dell.com.au 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.
