How to Enable Hardware virtualization on IdeaPad Y510p

Question

In order to run the emulator for windows phones I need to enable hardware virtualization.  Any idea how to enable this function on the IdeaPad Y510p?

Answer

Intel Virtualization Technology can be enabled by a setting in BIOS.

 

The BIOS can be entered from a cold boot, so in Windows 8 or 8.1, hold the shift key while selecting shut down.

Next, restart the computer and when you see the Lenovo screen, you should see a prompt to press F2 for setup / BIOS.

 

Once inside, BIOS go to Configurations tab and make sure that Intel Virtual Technology is enabled.

Press F10 to save and exit BIOS.
