    Virtualization enabled in bios but not working


    Hi there,

    I am trying to run a program which recommends enabling hardware visualization. I have followed the steps to enable Intel VT in uemi/bios menu. However Task Manager says that Virtualization is disabled, despite the fact that I have turned it on in the uemi/bios??

    I don't have any anti virus software, I don't have Hyper-V (windows 10 home edition, upgraded from Windows 7).

    Please help

    In Windows 10, Hyper-V must also be enabled in the "Turn Windows Features on or off" portion of the Programs and Features element in Control Panel, to wit:

    The checkbox next to Hyper-V must be checked (turned on) and the system rebooted, for Hyper-V to function on a Windows 10 PC. It is not turned on by default.
    And ooops! while I'm thinking about it, my recent online check confirms that Hyper-V is not an available feature on Windows 10 Home. It is only available in the Pro, Enterprise and Education editions of Windows 10. But even in those editions, it must be turned on before it can be used. Here's a Spiceworks post to confirm: Is there no way to use Hyper-V Manager on Windows 10 home? - Virtualization - Spiceworks.
    HTH,

    Hi there

    @Vanderzant

    HYPER-V needs W10 PRO or above --not available on W10 Home or any 32 bit versions of Windows.

    You CAN run VMWARE PLAYER or VIRTUAL BOX on W10 Home -- even with VT disabled --however note the following

    1) To run any sort of 64 bit Virtual machine GUEST you must have VT enabled --it IS possible to run a 64 Bit Guest even on a 32 Bit Host so long as VT is enabled --remember though if running a 64 bit GUEST then max RAM for HOST + GUEST is a max of 4 GB.

    2) Any 32 Bit OS can be run as a guest whether or not VT is enabled.

    3) Latest versions of VMWARE player need a 64 bit HOST to run it -- older versions are still available --search on the Net for it. VMPLAYER is FREE --install VMWARE tools on the GUEST VM after first power on.

    Cheers

    Thanks for the replies. Sorry I wasn't clear in my OP, but I am trying to run Memu (Android emulation program) and it recommends turning on Virtualization Tools in BIOS for the program to run 10x better.

    @EdTittel

    You're correct, I don't have Hyper-V. Do I need it for Intel-VT to function? (I thought it was to do with the CPU not windows) Or any clue what else could be preventing my Intel-VT from working with memu?
    @jimbo45


    Yes I can run Memu but it runs slowly. Am I out of luck then?

    Hi there
    @Vanderzant.

    Some older / cheaper laptops were fitted with Intel CPU's that have VT virtualisation - but this was (for best reasons known to the manufacturers) disabled. You might look to see if you can get a BIOS update.

    Otherwise the best way of running VM's is to have a load more RAM and the fastest HDD's (better SSD's) possible. In general slow performance on VM's isn't due to lack of CPU on most home type systems (unless your VM is doing a whole slew of serious work).

    Running a smallish Android emulator (32 bit) should be fine provided you have FAST DISKS.

    Cheers
