Note that in some cases, your PC’s hardware might support the virtualization technology but it hasn’t been enabled in the BIOS. If your PC supports virtualization technology, please modify the appropriate settings in the BIOS to the enable the same. More often than not, the setting to turn on virtualization technology is located under advanced BIOS features or hardware settings.
If you’re running Windows 7, the easiest way to check if your PC supports Windows 10 is running the Upgrade Assistant of Windows 8/8.1 on your PC. The Upgrade Assistant will scan your PC and let you know if your PC’s hardware meets the minimum system requirements of Windows 8. Since the hardware requirements of Windows 10 is the same as Windows 8, using the Upgrade Assistant sounds like a good idea.
