Actually, it turns out the BIOS setting was for something else. Apparently
this machine does not have virtualization support (even though I was
under the impression it was specifically purchased with that as
one of the required features, which was why I didn't look into
it earlier - Mordac is messing with me again :-).

It certainly isn't at all obvious from virt-manager that no hardware
support is available (not if you don't already know what hardware
support looks like in virt-manager, anyway).
