I am getting the following :-

$ sudo kvm-ok
INFO: Your CPU does not support KVM extensions
KVM acceleration can NOT be used
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Although I have an LG Gram 17Z90N with Intel Core-i7 1065G7.

This had me stumped for a long time as well.
Oddly enough, it didn't matter whether I was using my i5 or my Celeron.
The key was getting the Windows DEV Channel version of Windows 10.

Settings > Windows Insider Program > Dev Channel.

It was the very first step in the referenced "PreReq" steps blog post, and I just Blew past it because I didn't understand what "Fast Ring" meant.
