Dell XPS 15 9560 VT-X not activated Error

On my Dell XPS 15 9560 I get the VT-X not activated Error during the installation, but everything is activated under BIOS… Someone else having issues with a Dell XPS series ? Newest BIOS Update…

Hi @afisch,

It might be due to Hyper-V being enabled and conflicting with VirtualBox.

If you’re not using Hyper-V, you can go ahead and disable it. See for more details.

Once you’ve done that, restart your computer and then re-open Local.

Hi @clay
Thanks for your replay ! Unfortunately I already tried that and it wasn’t successful…
Maybe someone who reads the forum has the same model and can tell me if he was successful ?


It looks like this may be a common issue with the Dell XPS 9500 series. See
