I have not yet installed Parallels in OS X, but in Windows 8 Pro the OS is reporting that hardware virtualization features are disabled in firmware. Has anyone else experienced this? I may be missing something, but is there an enabler that I have to run or something I do in OS X to enable virtualization? I have the i7, 8GB RAM, and 512GB SSD. I'm having zero issues with Windows except that it appears the VT extensions are off. I'm not well versed enough on the OS X side to know how to do this or if there is even a way to access the EFI/BIOS settings like VT extensions. I appreciate any help you can provide!
