Enable VT-x and VT-d in BIOS

Hi,
I want to enable VT-x and VT-d in BIOS on my Lenovo desktop, which is having the attached CPU details, but I do not see any option to adjust VT, within BIOS\security.

What Lenovo model number, or at least the CPU in it?
It might not support them, in which case they won't be in the BIOS.

I can't find any details for such a model number. Do you have a more common description for the Lenovo Desktop?

Besides that, VT is usually not in the security section of the BIOS, but rather under CPU, or Advanced section. But of course it is also possible that your BIOS doesn't allow you to enable VT, or your CPU isn't capable of VT.

On the Lenovo site I can find M-Series Desktops (m4350 and m5800), and ZhinkCentre M-Series (many more models, but nothing with m10)...

Sometimes the model type is printed on the front of the PC.

Run CPU-Z and HwInfo, maybe those tools can give a better idea on your hardware:

It seems to be a ThinkCentre M-73. Unfortunately I can't find any details in the manual on where in the BIOS you can enable or disable VT.

Mayne it is already enabled by default? What do you need VT for? What OS is installed?

A quick look at the M-73 specs, only shows a i3-4130T CPU.
This does have VT-x, but not VT-d

Look under the CPU tab in CPU-Z and see if that's the cpu you have.

Also, since it's a SFF, they might not even have the option to Enable VT.  It's not what SFF's are usually used for.

Another possibility is the option is hidden, and you need to change the CPU setting from AUTO to MANUAL to "unhide" the other settings.
