    Cannot enable CPU virtualization


    I am trying to install an Android emulator to use a phone app on my PC.This requires me to enable CPU virtualization but I have been unable to get into BIOS setup to do this as I could in previous versions of Windows. The advanced options in the Recovery menu are no help. I have enabled the Hypervisor platform in Windows Features but the emulator program says virtualization is still not enabled. Have tried to get into BIOS on two laptops (one new) and one desktop but all three have latest Windows 10.

    :)

  2. HAV says virtualization disabled, I have enabled it in BIOS


    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.

    Cannot enable CPU virtualization

    Enable virtualization on Lenovo Yoga 11e

    Since you have Win 8.1 Enterprise, you have access to Hyper-V

    Here are specs for your CPU:

    I think your CPU supports minimum required for Hyper-V. This article tells how to enable Hyper-V on Win10, is probably very similar on Win8:

    Or you could look in to VMWare. That is the only other VM I am aware of.

    This article:

    http://techgenix.com/select-winning-virtualizat...

    lists 8 VM tool makers (including the 3 already mentioned). It doesn't name all of their products. Google is your friend, look for reviews that compare the various products.
