Hi Team,

Is there an option to enable virtualization from BIOS on an Azure Virtual Machine. How is it done? A step-by-step instruction would be great.

    Hi @Geeaz ,

    you can't enter the BIOS of an Azure VM.
    Only a few VM Series are supporting nested virtualization -> only Dv3 or Ev3 Series do

    Thomas Maurer's blog post might be helpful to get the nested virtualization up and running:
