"Enabling Intel-VT requires a cold restart. Try going back into the BIOS, turn it off, and turn off the computer (don't just reboot). Then start up, go in the BIOS and enable it, then once again turn the PC off. Make sure you save your changes in the BIOS.

Boot up and start VPC, check the options and ensure it is enabled:"

Perhaps a stupid suggestion, but have you checked if there's a Bios update where this problem might be fixed?
