    HAV says virtualization disabled, I have enabled it in BIOS

    Hey guys,
    So a few months ago I was trying to run an android vm using GenyMotion. The app I wanted to use, however, required it to be running with hardware assisted virtualization, which I enabled in the BIOS. I downloaded the microsoft HAV and tested it, and it told me that virtualization was supported on my computer, but was not enabled. I have checked and rechecked several times since then and it is enabled in the BIOS. However, the tool still says that virtualization technology is not enabled. What can i do? Is this an issue or is there something I'm missing?
    Thanks in advance

    What are your Hyper-V services (win-key + r, type "services.msc") set as?

    You need to disable hyper-v by either removing the feature or adding a bcd entry as described the link in the quote below as Hyper-V takes control of VT-x (even if you are not using it)

    Genymotion relies on the virtualization engine VirtualBox. It is impossible to use Oracle VM VirtualBox and Microsoft Hyper-V at the same time.

    Therefore, to use Genymotion, you must disable Hyper-V when booting your computer.

    To easily switch Hyper-V on or off on a Windows 8.X computer, please refer to this article.

    I followed the steps listed, but when I started genymotion again after resarting my computer, I still got the error telling me the number of cpus had been forced to one because virtualization isn't enabled. Also, the detection tool now tells me it doesn't work for my os.
