If you are wondering “Can my PC run Virtual Box? “, then this is a guide which will help you identify if your Intel processor supports Virtualization or not.
The first thing you need to do is to download a small tool named “Intel Processor ID Utility”.
Intel Processor Identification Tool : Download Link (~1.5 MB)
Go ahead and Install it , and open it. It will take a couple of seconds to check your processor details. It would show you the processor details such as the “Processor type” , “Model Number”, “Speed of each Core”, “System Bus”, “Cache Memory Size” etc.
Now, click on the tab named “CPU Technologies“.
You need to check these two fields: “Intel(R) Virtulization Technology” and “Intel Vt-x with Extended Page Tables“.
If the “Intel(R) Virtualization Technology” is “Yes” , then your processor supports Virtualization.
The next field “Intel Vt-x with Extended Page Tables” is optional. You don’t need to worry if it says “No”, you can still use Virtualization software but the performance would be slightly lower.
