| The BIOS

| it. Cheaper notebooks might have a CPU that supports VT-x but the BIOS
| might not. Hyper-V will not work without VT-x enabled.
I haven't seen a BIOS that stupid. I've seen them stupidly default
VT-X off. Perhaps there were in a few the early days when only some
Intel chips supported VT-x. I don't remember that being the case for
any Core i processors.
I think that only some Core 2 Duo processors had VT-x. And only some
Pentium 4 processors had VT-x. Neither family matters these days.
