Virtual Machine doesn't start, stuck at "PCI2.10 PnP PMM"

Another day another problem, I was setting up a lab environment, after creating a Virtual Machine using Virtual Machine Manager, My machine would get stuck here and never move:

SeaBIOSversion 1.9.1-5.el7_3.2) Machine UUID ... iPXE (http://ipxe.org) 00:03.0 C980 PCI2.10 PnP PMM

The error seemed to suggest there was something wrong with my NIC card as the Virtual Machine would boot if i disabled Network. I even tried it with a new NIC card but i kept getting stuck here.

Solution:
Turned out that I didn't enable Virtualization in BIOS. Please make sure Virtualization is enabled before creating a Virtual Machine.

I am still wondering how I was able to create a VM without a Network.
