Hardware Virtualisation on E520 with i5-2540M 2.6GHz

Hi,

 

I'm trying to set up a virtual machine using Virtual Box on my E520, but I don't have the option to turn on VT in the BIOS.

 

I've checked the CPU with Intel and it does support this feature. How do I go about turning it on?

 

Thanks, Neil.

Yes, I updated it this morning via the update utility.

Sorry, it's been a long week... I've found the option under 'Security' in the BIOS.
