Solved HP Administrator Tools disabled when trying to enable hardware virtualization for Windows phone emulator.

Got this message when trying to run the windows phone emulator on my new computer an hp folio 9470m:

Clicking on "More information" and you end up on this MSDN article:

Following the instruction I tried to log in as administrator in the BIOS but all Administrator Tools settings were disabled, could not find out why, the log in seemed to be ok with the credentials.

After searching the hp support forum I finally gave up and started to googling the problem, right a way I found this post on the hp support forum,

You have to log in as guest and set the BIOS administrator password to get the Administrator Tools enabled, really bad UX, why not prompt the user to set the administrator password the first time?
