Windows 10: How do I enable Hardware Acceleration?

    How do I enable Hardware Acceleration?


    While trying to install OS2 Warp 4 to a Virtual Machine under Virtualbox, I'm informed that it won't run because Hardware Acceleration is not enabled.

    Can someone PLEASE tell me, step by step, how to do this? Show some mercy on me and don't refer me to MS articles I need an engineer to translate.

    Virtual Box will always state that for any VM's that you try to set up. There are plenty of tutorials out there on how to setup OS2 Warp on Virtual Box. You are going to have to find the correct tutorial that works for you. So start searching.

    You can switch it on in the BIOS settings

    The message is kinda vague. It could mean that the virtualization is disabled in BIOS or that you have not enabled virtualization for that virtual machine but it is available. If it is already enabled in the BIOS check the virtual machine's settings.Click image for larger version.

    Where is this setting since I do not see it in hyper-v virtual manager?
