Could help to provide the full /proc/cpuinfo output, as well as 'virsh
--connect xen:/// capabilities' as root

Hmm, not sure what the hypervisor flag is, but virtinst is looking for vmx or
svm reported in libvirt capabilities

That link claims your cpu should be showing the svm flag AFAICT. If you
recently enabled virt in the bios, make sure you fully turn off your machine
and let it sit for a couple minutes (yes this can actually make a difference
with bios settings).

Additionally check your motherboard manufacturer website and make sure your
board supports your CPU and has the latest bios update installed.
