FYI, 'fully virtualized' is what VT allows you to use.

What distro and hypervisor are you using? (basically, xen or kvm).

If you are using kvm, true paravirtualization isn't a valid option, so
just choose fully virt. Paravirt, in the sense that we represent it,
only applies to xen. Yes, the UI is confusing in this respect, but all
that is slated to change "real soon now".

If you are using xen, please provide:

uname -a
virsh capabilities
