      I've learned from experience that Intel's Core i3 mobile chips (even the 3rd generation) do NOT support Hyper-V. In fact, the only i3 that supports Hyper-V is the i3-2115C. Just getting it out there.

      The search for supported Intel CPUs is: http://ark.intel.com/search/advanced/?s=t&VTX=true&VTX_ExtendedPageTables=true&TXT=true
