Enabling Virtualization?

I need to enable virtualization in my bios so i can use "XP Mode" (Yes i have Windows 7 Pro) and yes my processor handles Vt-x or Vx-t but theres no option to enable it in the bios?

 

How would i go about doing this?

Laptop(Lenovo Y550 4186)-processor: Core 2 Duo 2.53GHz, System Memory: 4 GB, Graphics Controller: NVIDIA GT240M, HardDrive: 320GB, Optical Storage: DVD-RW Combo drive

Re: Enabling Virtualization?

Are there any chances for support vt for Lenovo 3000 G530? I have a new procesor, and it will be sad, don't use 100% power of them :smileyhappy:

@ chmurowski
check download page for bios updates first. also, make sure that your new cpu supports vt.

Re: Enabling Virtualization?

@chmurowski,

You mentioned new processor? Did you change the proc yourself?

i put new procesor CORE 2 DUO P8400 2.26GHZ/3M/1066MHZ on my laptop, and it works. But i haven't vt. I have no idea what i should do. Maby bios mod? But how ?! :smileyhappy: Maby the problem is fact that this model official never have procesor with vt (any revision), and lenovo don't think about add this option in bios.

@chmurowski,

Interesting, was VT enabled before this? Based on a case which I've asked L2 previously, VT was always been enabled for IdeaPads just that in ThinkPad, you have an option to disable them.
