Probably both.  Intel allows the BIOS to disable the VT instructions at
boot time.

If the BIOS allows you to enable it (most manufacturers leave it
disabled by default) you will need to power-cycle the machine after
doing so (just rebooting won't work - the machine needs to be off for
the option to be enabled properly.)
