'm trying to dig into this to be able to boot into my ubuntu desktop.

When i run: /usr/bin/check-bios-nx --verbose , i get this:
'This CPU is family 15, model 4, and has NX capabilities but is unable to use these protective features because the BIOS is configured to disable the capability. Please enable this in your BIOS. For more details, see: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Security/CPUFeatures

It seems to be a simple problem but i can't identify this feature in my BIOS, and alas, i am completely stuck, unable to boot into my desktop.

How to boot into desktop?
