How to check VT-X/AMD-v enabled or not in your Laptop?

Method 1 – Using task Manager

If you have Windows 10 or Windows 8 operating system, the easiest way to check is by opening up Task Manager->Performance Tab. You should see Virtualization as shown in the below screenshot. If it is enabled, it means that your CPU supports Virtualization and is currently enabled in BIOS.

Method 2 – Checking in VMs Directly

Method 3 – using command “systeminfo”

If instead you see ‘A hypervisor has been detected. Features required for Hyper-V will not be displayed’, that means Hyper-V is enabled on the system. Removing the Hyper-V feature should be enough but if Secure Boot is enabled, you’ll be prevented from removing Hyper-V because some Windows security features depend on virtualization.

Execute this:

$ VBoxManage modifyvm <VirtualMachineName> --nested-hw-virt on
