    Intel processors

    Code:
    grep vmx /cat/procinfo
    AMD Processors

    Code:
    grep svm /cat/procinfo
    Note : you may need to enable virtualization extensions in your bios, many manufacturers do not enable them by default.

    Your looking for something like this in BIOS:

    And I think vBox will run in just about anything. If you want to know if you can run KVM; open a terminal and enter:

    kvm-ok
