Hello and welcome,

 

I don't have the same machine to check.  The on-line BIOS simulator shows that virtualization is supported - but misspelled Smiley Wink

 

Have a look in your BIOS in the same place.  That will tell you if it's supported.

If you're thinking of hyper-V another requirement is Win 8 64bit Pro version. However if you're thinking of VM player or other program check their site for additional requirements.

Hi there ,

Thanks for the help ,I checked my BIOS no option for Virtualization ,or any miss spells one like you have shown in the picture , I downloaded Intel processor identification utility , It shows that its not supported . But still my friend insist that the system is new generation machine . It is supported . My system does support hyper thredding and there is option to unable or disable. Just to be sure i am asking this question on Lenovo forum . Thanks

Hi firstofficer911,

 

I have a Z500 touch and I can enable virtualization in the bios.  I've never used it. What version bios are you running?  

 

Regards,

Dave

Re: One Simple Question Dose z500 supports virtualiziation ?

I have the Z500 with an I7-3632QM processor. Yes the Processor does suport Virtual technology however the os is only a standard Win 8.1 64 bit. So it does not work with Hyper-V. The feature is there but it can't work. It will work only with the Pro version which I have in another unit. Here is a snapshot of the spec for the processor:

Here is an excellent tutorial that I use to try out hyper-V. It also list down at the beginning the requirements to run Hyper-V.
