I am trying to get VMware 14 working on an HP Compaq Presario CQ56-201SQ Laptop and I'm getting the error:

This host does not support Intel VT-x.
This host does not support "Intel EPT" hardware assisted MMU virtualization.
Module 'CPUIDEarly' power on failed.
Failed to start the virtual machine.

I checked my BIOS and I didn't see any "Virtual Technology" option to enable.

I was trying to update my BIOS using Linux by creating a FreeDOS USB and adding the .exe file on it.

When I tried to execute it, I got the error:

This program cannot be run in DOS mode.

Any ideas on how to get it working?

Thank you!!
