    Hi all,

    I have an acer travelmate 8372 notebook, I have installed virtual box on the system but each time I try and build a VM I get errors indicating that VT-x is not enabled on my computer. When I boot into the bios to enable it I don't find any where and I also cannot find the advanced setting option which this setting should be found.

    I have tried to research this problem and it seems as if acer has disabled the advanced option on the bios by default and that the setting cannot cannot be enabled as it's not supported.

    Does anyone here know a work around on this that is safe that I can implement, I have tried everything but nothing seems to work. My bios firmware is on it's latest version which is 1.10.
