Resolved the Acer 5560G Hardware Virtualization Issue

Download the BIOS version 1.09 dated 26 Sep 2011 here


AMD A6 does support AMD-V hardware virtualization. Thank to my friend Rob T for the useful feedback. Somehow you cannot disable or enable it from through BIOS.

    Can you explain more? I updated to 1.09, but I do not see AMD-V or VT-x in the BIOS. CPU-Z still reports that I do not have VT-x.
