Problem with hardware virtualization in Acceleration software

Postby percival2009 » 26. Dec 2018, 00:15

Hello guys,

I need a little help. I have downloaded Virtual Box, in order to be able to run SAS University Edition, but there is a message of "invalid settings detected" with the description:

"System Acceleration Settings: The hardware virtualization is enabled in the Acceleration section of the system although it is not supported from the host system. It should be disabled in order to start the visual system."

I am going to the Settings, System, Acceleration and there when i try to untick the box "hardware virtualization" it doesnt let me. It is unclicked, and after it is clicked again automatically because it says that 64 bit neeeds hardware virtualization.
So i am trapped in a circle that has no exit.

PLease help, I need to run the programme!
Thanks in advance.

If the vm was set up to use hardware virtualization, then it needs it. You will need to enable it in the BIOS of the host computer. How you do that depends on what version of what BIOS your motherboard uses.

It is the first code that executes when you (re)start your computer. When it is executing it probably just shows a Sony or Vaio logo. Getting into the setup may require pressing F2, F11, F10, F12 or CTRL-S - it varies depending on the BIOS. You also only have a small window in which to press the appropriate key so, once you have found the correct key to press, I would suggest pressing it many times in order to get it to work.

I'd start by going to the Sony website and looking at the documentation for your particular model as that should tell you the correct key to use.

Was the VM running at the time? You can't change most of the hardware while the VM is running.

I have the same problem, but when I checked my bios setup (and through windows Task Manager) I saw that VTx is enabled.
what else can cause this problem?
I am trying to install Ubunto 64-b on my virtual box 6.0

@picolo
Please go thoroughly through the FAQ: I have a 64bit host, but can't install 64bit guests. Remember that these are just guidelines, you have to use your judgement...

@socratis
Thank you for your comment, I have gone thoroughly through the FAQ but I still can't find any solution to my problem.
I have double checked my BIOS setup, Hyper-V flag and my computer setting.

Create a VM, a 64-bit VM. First of all, can you create a 64-bit VM, or you only have 32-bit options available?
  • Start that VM, no need to actually do anything with it.
  • Once you reach the "Fatal! No bootable medium found", close the VM window. Select to "Power off" the VM.
  • Right-click on the VM in the VirtualBox Manager and select "Show Log".
  • Save only the first "VBox.log", ZIP it and attach it to your response. See the "Upload attachment" tab below the reply form.

@socratis Thank you for your comment.
I am only able to create 32bit machines
I had checked the vt-x and vt-d in my bios settings and also that hyper-v is disabled.
any ideas?

All the ideas are written in the FAQ. And they're ideas, not the solution!
Only you know what software you have installed on your computer that may be stealing VT-x. You got to go through the FAQ and get some ideas...
