The computer I have is Z230 Tower Workstation. Intel i7 4790 and 16GB RAM

  • Did you by chance get the vm from someone/somewhere else – Drifter104 Jul 22 '16 at 16:33
  • You should provide more details (what kind of computer, etc...). You should also try googling this before posting here. – Aubrey Robertson Jul 22 '16 at 16:36
  • I did google and no result – deXterlab97 Jul 22 '16 at 16:36

You didn't provide very much information, but you ostensibly do not have hardware virtualization support enabled. You must go to your BIOS (usually hit delete during the boot-up process) and turn on the VT-x feature (for Intel processors) or the AMD-V feature (for AMD processors). Without knowing what kind of computer you have, there's no other information I can provide. Depending on your hardware, you might not have this feature available. Here's a link to more detailed instructions:


  • Its a HP Z230 Worktower Station with i7 4790 – deXterlab97 Jul 22 '16 at 16:36

    Try the solution and then get back to me. You are going to be looking for the VT-x feature (make sure it's turned on). – Aubrey Robertson Jul 22 '16 at 16:37
  • It's a college computer and I can not access BIOS. We are not allowed – deXterlab97 Jul 22 '16 at 16:41
  • Then I suggest you speak with the college system administrator about the error, or attempt to complete the lab on your own computer. – Aubrey Robertson Jul 22 '16 at 16:42

    The first line when you sign up here is "Server Fault is for questions about managing information technology systems in a business environment." – Chopper3 Jul 22 '16 at 16:42
