How to confirm, if your PC supports h/w virtualization ?

For Windows,

For Ubuntu,
  • egrep -c ‘(svm|vmx)’ /proc/cpuinfo
  • A 0 indicates that your CPU doesn’t support hardware virtualization, while a 1 or more indicates that it does. You may still have to enable hardware virtualization support in your computer’s BIOS, even if this command returns a 1 or more.

To enable h/w virtualization through BIOS,
  • Boot into the BIOS.
  • Check the Enable Intel Virtualization Technology checkbox under virtualization support.
