    Hi everybody,

    I search a way to enable VT-x on my MBA 2013 via Windows to use Hyper-V.
    I searched on Google but I found solutions via OS X only. But I deleted OS X and I don't want to reinstall OS X.

    If anybody knows a solution.

    Thanks.


    Sorry for my English.

    Hi, thanks for your answer

    The EFI is already updated via Apple Software Update.

    I know via OS X, it would be easier. I can try to install OS X on USB device to enable VT-x but I'd try another way via EFI if possible.

    It will take less time to bang OSX on Apple hardware then trying to re-invent the wheel

    And WHY to spend the money on MBA to use something else one it?

    Because in 2013, it was the rare 11" computer with core i5, 8 GB RAM and good battery life.

    I installed OS X on USB drive yesterday, and I followed this : On OS X, go to System Preferences -> Startup Disk and choose Boot Camp partition (hxxp://superuser.com/questions/717421/how-to-enable-hardware-virtualization-on-a-macbook)

    But it doesn't work.
