How can I activate Intel Virtualization on my Y500 IdeaPad

Hello,

I want to enable virtualization on my lenovo 3000 Y500 with intel pentium dual core inside 1.73 GHz processor [I have checked it on intel website that it supports virtualization] http://ark.intel.com/products/29740/Intel-Pentium-Processor-T2080-1M-Cache-1_73-GHz-533-MHz-FSB

I have upgraded to windows 8.1 pro 32bit from windows vista [Was already installed when i bought it].

Some extra info that i collected is as follows-

BIOS Type:      Phoenix
BIOS Date:      May 17th, 2007
BIOS ID:          NAPA0001.86C.0059.D.0705170855
BIOS OEM:      v2.06
Chipset:           Intel 27A0 rev 3
SuperIO:          Unknown
Manufacturer:  No Enclosure
Motherboard:   LENOVO3000 Y500

 

I tried to find out the option to enable in BIOS under advanced tab but didn't find anything even similar to it.

Please let me know if any new versions are availabe so i can update it.

 

Thank You.

Hi,

 

You don't see the option as described in this KB?

 

https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/IdeaPad-Y-U-V-Z-and-P-series/How-can-I-activate-Intel-Virtualization-on...

 

If it's there and you enable it, do a BIOS save and exit, and then a full power-off, power-on reboot.  Without the cold reboot VT won't be seen by the OS or software.
