    Most of recent Acer laptop models support both Hyper-V and VT-x* (not AMD CPU models), they are both enabled even if those options are hidden on BIOS.
    If your laptop has an Intel CPU, you can check if you CPU/system supports virtualization instructions, using Intel Processor Identification Utility:

    If your laptop has an AMD CPU, AMD-V is disabled by default on BIOS and can't be enabled.

    Devices using Windows 10 Home will need to upgrade home to Windows 10 Professional or Enterprise to use Hyper-V. Windows 10 requirements can be found here:
    * If Hyper-V is ON, VT-x will not be available; Hyper-V must be OFF to have VT-x recognised by virtual machines.

    Turn OFF Hyper-V

    Method 1
    Open a Command prompt with administrative rights (Admin)
    type
    bcdedit /set hypervisorlaunchtype off
    exit
    Reboot your OS

    or

    Method 2
    Go to Control Panel -> Programs -> Programs and Features -> click Turn Windows features on or off -> un-check Hyper-V -> click OK
    Turn ON Hyper-V
    Open a Command prompt with administrative rights (Admin)
    type
    bcdedit /set hypervisorlaunchtype auto
    exit
    Reboot your OS

    or

    Method 3
    Go to Control Panel -> Programs -> Programs and Features -> click Turn Windows features on or off -> check Hyper-V -> click OK
