The I7-3717U supports VTX, so the problem could be when running HAXM under Windows 8.
I recommend you to check if you have the 1.0.6 (R3) version of HAXM. You will be able to find it on the following link: http://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/intel-hardware-accelerated-execution-manager
I have the same processor (I7-3517U) and I'm experiencing a very similar issue on Windows 8.1.
I have tried installing both HAXM version 1.0.6 (R3) and version 1.0.7 (R3 hotfix for Windows 8.1). However, no matter if I enable or disable Intel Virtualization on BIOS I always get the "This computer meets the requirements for HAXM, but Intel Virtualization Technology is not enabled" error.
I don't have Windows 7 and would appreciate a fix to this issue.
Hi Sylvia, sorry for the delay. I was having login issues.
Here's my computer/BIOS info:
- Computer Maker: LG Electronics
- Computer Model: Z460-G.BG51P1
- BIOS Type: Phoenix Technologies Ltd.
- BIOS Version: ZDCRSF81
- BIOS Date: 10/04/2012
On my product's webpage there's no BIOS update for Windows 8 (or Windows 8.1). There's only a BIOS update for Windows 7 that always crashes with an installation error. I've contacted LG support and they've sent me the link to the Korean webpage with drivers for all the Z460 models. However, there was no driver update for the BIOS on that page.
How should I proceed? Thanks in advance.
Gabrielcs, I was marking some research and it looks like HAXM is incompatible with the Hyper-V feature of Windows 8. You would have to disable Hyper-V.
To disable Hyper-V:
- Go to Programs and Features in Control Panel
- Click “Turn Windows Features On or Off” in the left navigation area
- Find Hyper-V and clear the check mark.
Here’s a thread if you need additional information.
