VT-x is not available

Postby BriwixX » 7. Jan 2019, 16:37

I don't succeed to launch a virtual os (such that Ubuntu or Debian) on Virtual Box since I always get the following error :
VT-x is not available (VERR_VMX_NO_VMX).
Code d'erreur : E_FAIL (0x80004005)
Composant : ConsoleWrap
Interface : IConsole {872da645-4a9b-1727-bee2-5585105b9eed}

Nevertheless, I checked that virtualization is indeed enabled in the bios.
Then, I don't have Hyper-V in my windows features but "platform of windows hypervisor" (in french: "plateforme de l'Hyperviseur Windows") and no particular options proposed.
I unchecked it to try but I got more error messages since restarting my computer and trying an os on virtualbox so I actived it again.

I don't understand the problem I have since VT-X is well in "enabled" mode in my bios.

Could you help me to find the reason I don't succeed to launch an os with VT-X not working ?
Thank you for reading this message and trying to help me. :)

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...
Do NOT send me Personal Messages (PMs) for troubleshooting, they are simply deleted.
Do NOT reply with the "QUOTE" button, please use the "POST REPLY", at the bottom of the form.
If you obfuscate any information requested, I will obfuscate my response. These are virtual UUIDs, not real ones.
