At startup, when the logo of your motherboard appears, press several times DEL key (depending on your keyboard) to enter into the BIOS.
Then, if your BIOS is like this, go to the advanced mode.

Then "Advanced" and search term "Virtualization" or a similar term in a category called "processor", "CPU", ...
In our case this category is called "CPU Configuration".

Look for "Intel Virtualization Technology" or "VT-X" for Intel processors.
Or "AMD-V", "SVM" or "Secure Virtual Machine" for AMD processors.

Once modified, click "Exit" and save the changes (in general, it is the F10 key).
