Virtual Machine Not Launching

Postby MPS-Ben » 8. Dec 2021, 23:41

Hi all,

I've had a virtual machine installed for years, it's a copy of my old laptop that i had at uni as that had some cool software installed.

I'm not aware of any updates having recently taken place but all of a sudden it fails to launch. Would anyone be able to help based on the error message?

Failed to start the virtual machine Toshiba.

Not in a hypervisor partition (HVP=0) (VERR_NEM_NOT_AVAILABLE).

AMD-V is disabled in the BIOS (or by the host OS) (VERR_SVM_DISABLED).

Result Code: E_FAIL (0x80004005)
Component: ConsoleWrap
Interface: IConsole {872da645-4a9b-1727-bee2-5585105b9eed}

Either your computer's "virtualization technology" (AMD-V / SVM) is not on in the BIOS or Hyper-V is active. Go through everything in:
