How to enable VT (Virtualization Technology) on Thinkpad X220 ?


I have been looking in my X220 BIOS setting to enable VT, can't find it until now, very confusing while in Intel ID Utility it is said that my X220 is capable for VT. I already upgrade to the new BIOS firmware but it is still don't have option to enable VT.





In BIOS > Security > Enable / Disable VT

I managed to solve the problem - you need to enable VT-x and VT-d in BIOS. But it's not under CPU settings as expected, but under Security -- Virtualization ! Turning it on, everythign works as expected. 


Also you can check support for virtualization using MS's tool http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=592 (on W8 run in W7 compatibility as superuser)

Many thanks.

But within BIOS\security, I do not see any option to enable VT,  on my Lenovo desktop.
