Hey guys,

I want to be able to check through the command line if VT is enabled in the BIOS for scripting purposes. I know we can check if VT is supported by the chip using the following:

But is there any way to check if its enabled in the BIOS? Perhaps there is a small test to run that uses VT that can fail if its not enabled in the BIOS?

This would be a great tip if somebody could figure it out.

From my understanding from reading Geek's article, just the fact that you can run a 64bit machine means that it's working. Perhaps you could have a tiny virtual machine with linux and start it up?

I'm not sure otherwise.
