Hi! Sorry, but we're not seeing any of this in our BIOS. Is this even possible on a thinkcentre M93z all in one? i believe it's a 4 core i5.

I am having a t470. I need to enable the Vitualization on the T470. I need to use a script for this and i do have one. It is working on all the other machines but not on this T470 and any other laptops with TPM chip. I am getting access denied even the script will suspend the bitlocker. Please assit. I need to get this to thousands machine and wil be using SCCM to deploy the script. Please assit.
