Acer laptop...I suspect they never bothered to include the option to enable it. Pretty weak processor as well so depending on what you wanted to run it it may not work well anyways.

The thing is, I was running VirtualBox with instants of Sever 2012 R2 and a couple of Win 7 clients, but I got a bad virus I could nothing about so I had to wipe and reload. Now having reinstalled VB it only gives me the option of x86 guest operating systems...

Thanks for your reply...

Did you change settings in the BIOS or update the BIOS between then and now? And it was VirtualBox you ran before and not VMWare Player? You don't have Microsoft Hyper-V installed as well? If it is you need to remove it.
