Virtualization technology—How to Enable Hardware Virtualization

Why do you need to enable virtualization technology?

MEmu App Player will have better performance if hardware virtualization technology (aka Intel-VT, vt-x, AMD-V) is enabled on your computer. Most of mainstream Intel and AMD CPUs support this feature.

enable vt

If it’s not enabled properly, we recommend you to enable it by following steps:

1. Download a 3rd-party tool: LeoMoon CPU-V to detect your CPU’s capability.

2. If get the result as below, that means your CPU is too old… bad news 🙁

3. If get the result as below, you need enable this feature in BIOS by yourself.

How to enable VT (Virtualization Technology) in BIOS:

Step 1. Press a designated key repeatedly (depends on your machine vendor, e.g. F2 or Del works for most Dell) to enter into BIOS setup page when system powers up.

Note: For some Lenovo laptop (Idea), there is a NOVO button to enter into system configuration. More details: Introduction to NOVO button

Note: For Windows 8.1 or 10, you can also manage to enter into BIOS in another way. More details: How to enter into BIOS in Windows 10

Step 2. Look for virtualization technology (aka Intel VT or AMD-V) and enable it. At the end, save and restart the computer to apply the change.

Note: The BIOS settings for Intel VT or AMD-V are usually in the Chipset or Processor menus. The menu names may vary from this guide, the virtualization settings may be found in Security Settings or other non standard menu names.

4. If get the result as below, you are probably ready to go with hardware virtualization now.leomoon-2green

If you still get feature off warning, it’s probably conflicted with 3rd party software, check this post.
