Virtualization on MSI B450?

For me, it's under Advanced - OC - CPU features. I have an MSI B450 Mortar.

I (finally) got my Ryzen setup complete about a week ago, rocking an R5 2600x on an MSI B450 mobo. 

 

I've been trying to set up an Ubuntu VM on my machine using VirtualBox. However, I keep getting an error that "AMD-V" is not enabled (I assume that means virtualization in general is not enabled in my BIOS). So I took to the Google to try to find out how to enable it. But. The answers I found either 1: didn't answer the question of "how to enable virtualization on MSI B450", or 2: were for a different motherboard entirely. 

 

So. Does anybody here know where in the BIOS on an MSI B450 I can enable virtualization? And does this board even support virtualization?

It's not labeled as virtualization or AMD-V in the BIOS (at least on my Asus B350 board). I forget what it's called, and can't check right now. I remember that I had to look at the descriptions of all the options in the CPU section to fine one described as "enables CPU virtualization"

All modern boards support virtualization, even horrible crap-budget ones. The option is there somewhere, just gotta look more carefully for it. If you can find screenshots of all the BIOS-settings, I can point it out for you.
