Aspire A515-51G bios update 1.21 breaks virtualisation in Virtualbox

I seems dat bios V 1.21 broke the virtualitation settings (VT-X) in A515-51G. If VT-X is set to ON in Bios, Intel Processor Identification Utility reports Intel virtualisation: No. After changing VT-X in Bios to OFF the Intel utility says: Intel Virtualisation: Yes. Because of this, Virtualbox does not support 64 bit-hosts. Hyper-V seems to work properly.
After downgrading to Bios 1.20, all is fine and I can use host-operating systems in Virtualbox in 64 bit mode.
Does anyone have the same problems with this update?

    Correction: Bios 1.21 update breaks Virtualbox 64-bit GUEST-support (not Host)
  • I understood that you updated the bios and blocked the vt-x function! However it is important that every time the user updates the bios, click on load setup defaults so that any bug or misconfiguration that has been in the previous version can be fixed! Maybe you would not need to risk downgrading to the previous version!

    I did load the setup defaults, but this had no effect.
  • The only solution was to downgrade?
