Important Step After Enabling Virtualization in BIOS

After you save your settings please follow this important step below in order for VT to work properly.

1. Enable VT in bios (where the option is, depends on your MoBo manufacturer)
2. Save BIOS Settings
3. Exit BIOS
4. Shut Down PC (some PC's will shut down automatically for about 3-4 seconds when you save the BIOS. Some will NOT)
5. Leave PC off for about 5-10 seconds
6. Boot PC

you should be all set.
I think this should save a lot of the posts where folk have enabled VT in their bios but it is still not working.

sticky maybe?

But what is VT? I didn't see anything like that in my BIOS at all. I enabled virtualization saved and exited.

Is VT an Intel only feature?

Intel Processors = Intel Virtualization Technology for x86 (Intel VT-x)
AMD Processors = AMD virtualization (AMD-V)

I never did find anything else in the bios that could be related to virtualization. It has one option to enable or disable and it is simply called virtualization not AMD-V or any of that.

You may have a bad BIOS battery. Mine went bad a while ago and I popped off to Radio Shack for a new one. Installed, powered system up, left it one for a couple of hours, powered off, made BIOS settings, rebooted and then they stuck... :-)
