Enable Virtualization Technology On Asus Acer HP Dell Lenovo

In this article, I will show how to enable virtualization technology on Asus, Acer, HP, Dell and Lenovo based systems. This feature is a modern technology on laptops or desktops that allows us to install multiple operating systems on the host machine without any problem.

What is Virtualization?

Virtualization is the process of creating a software or virtual representation of something, such as virtual applications, servers, storage, and networks. It’s the most effective way to reduce IT expenses while improving efficiency and agility for businesses of all sizes. Learn more on the VMware website.

Modern enterprises virtualize their environment to reduce the cost of hardware and labor. Because by using virtualization technology, the organization does not need to buy physical hardware to install the operating systems on it. Instead, they purchase a physical computer with virtualization capabilities and install various operating systems.

Why enable virtualization technology?

Modern processors include hardware virtualization capabilities that help accelerate VirtualBox, VMware, Hyper-V, and other virtual machine applications. However, Intel VT-x is not always enabled by default. If the hypervisor is not enabled, you will see a message like “This computer’s processor is not compatible with Hyper-V” or or “No hypervisor found” Where “The guest operating system has disabled the processor“.

Simply, we have to enable VT-X when we want to use VMware, VirtualBox, Hyper-V. If you want to install OS on virtualization applications, you need to enable vt-x from your system bios. In this guide, I will show some popular computer virtualization technologies such as Asus, Acer, HP, Dell and Lenovo.

To find out if your system has virtualization technology and is enabled or disabled, follow the steps below.

  1. Right click on the Taskbar and select Task Manager.
  2. Click on the Performance tab and select CPU on the left side.
  3. See Virtualization on the CPU page (Enabled).

If it’s enabled, you don’t have to do anything. If it is disabled, follow the steps below to enable virtualization technology on different computers.
