warning: unable to install Intel HAXM Your CPU does not support required features (V-x or SVM).

I was able to download Android Studio as discussed in the video but I did get a message appear under the downloading components:

Unable to install Intel HAXM Your CPU does not support required features (VT-x or SVM). Unfortunately, your computer does not support hardware accelerated virtualization. Here are some of your options: 1) Use a physical device for testing 2) Develop on a Windows/OSX computer with an Intel processor that supports VT-x and NX

I'm assuming I can still use my computer to continue with the treehouse course but will be unable to use the virtual device for testing output results. Is this correct? And I have an iPhone so cannot test on a physical device...any advice about options would be appreciated.

I think it's because my PC has AMD processor...

I already enabled virtualization in my Bios settings on my desktop. I installed Android Studio on my laptop which does have an Intel processor and it seems to be working so far.
