Is it possible to enable EPT on poweredge T110 II?

SomeGuy99 asked:

It seems that I need to enable EPT in order to play/learn more about Docker.
(Running win server 2016 in a VM)
I have run CoreInfo and I can see that EPT is not supported on my cpu.
When I google the cpu I find that EPT is supported: Intel
Which is true? How to enable EPT?

My answer:


You can’t use extended page tables if virtualization is disabled, as this is an extension to virtualization (VT-x) in the first place.

This particular Dell server ships with virtualization disabled in the BIOS. Check the BIOS settings under Processor Settings and enable virtualization.
