ERROR: VT-x is not available. (VERR_VMX_NO_VMX).

Postby mumaniho » 15. Dec 2011, 03:03

i got this error while trying to Run Chrome OS in a VirtualBox .

I'm on Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10,6,8 , intel core 2 duo 3.0

and i am running the lastest version of virtualbox which is VirtualBox 4.1.6 for OS X hosts

i've tried editing XML file ( which is a prev now ) to disable it but it just doesn't work, i get the exact same error and when i go to prev file to check it , it just added again the line Hard... ="true"

i edit it and looks like this :

<CPU count="1" hotplug="false">
<HardwareVirtEx />
<HardwareVirtExNestedPaging enabled="true"/>
<HardwareVirtExVPID enabled="true"/>
<PAE enabled="true"/>
<HardwareVirtExLargePages enabled="false"/>
<HardwareVirtForce enabled="false"/>
</CPU>


then i say everything is fine, save, close & reopen virtuabox, run Chrome OS and again same problem i go check prev file and looks like this :

<CPU count="1" hotplug="false">
<HardwareVirtEx enabled="true" exclusive="false"/>
<HardwareVirtExNestedPaging enabled="true"/>
<HardwareVirtExVPID enabled="true"/>
<PAE enabled="true"/>
<HardwareVirtExLargePages enabled="false"/>
<HardwareVirtForce enabled="false"/>
</CPU>


Its like it adds itself !

this is the error im getting

Fallo al abrir una sesión para la máquina virtual Chrome OS.

VT-x is not available. (VERR_VMX_NO_VMX).

Tell me you saw the first 3 lines in that file!

If you must change things use VBoxManage to do so.
See Chapter 8 VBoxManage in your VirtualBox users guide.

Why are you trying to set the VT-x flag to false anyway? The error indicates that the OS need hardware virtualization, which it appears that you do not have enabled.

The C2D 3.0 (E7500 ?) Does not have hardware VT, so it is impossible to enable it.
I have similar issue using E7400 and E7500 on both Windows or Mac OS Hosts, the GUI won't allow me to disable hardware VT, so the VM will not start.
However, I can disable it in the XML file, just make sure all VirtualBox processes are closed before you edit it.
Change <HardwareVirtEx enabled="true" exclusive="false"/>
into <HardwareVirtEx enabled="false" exclusive="false"/>
And thats it.
