Virtualization is locked in BIOS

Super User Asked by Ben R on February 23, 2021

I want to run virtual machines on my computer, my Windows is currently 32-bit and I’m switching to 64, I don’t know why they gave it with 32 because It would work with 64.
When I go to the BIOS the option of virtualization is greyed out.
I saw a program telling the things so here’s a screenshot:


Would it work for me when I’ll switch to 64-bit?

  • Windows 10 Pro
  • Intel Core 2 Duo E8400
  • 4GB RAM

One Answer

Your processor supports virtualization (VT-x) as can be confirmed on

You can install and run the Intel® Processor Identification Utility if you're not convinced. You should see something like this if it's supported: Intel VT-x supported
