    Hi,

    That error seems to ask if virtualzation or similar in the bios is enabled in this case VT-x

    You can check it out

    Code:
    grep -Eow 'svm|vmx' /proc/cpuinfo -m1 || { echo 'No dice' >&2; }
    If it prints

    Code:
    svm
    of

    Code:
    vmx
    You can check out the configuration in the vm settings but if it prints
    Code:
    No dice
    You can check this site for more useful info (i hope)

    Enable "Hardware Virtualization Support" (or VT-X) in your host's BIOS settings, as the message suggest.

    Choose/select a 64 bit version of that vm there should be a dropdown menu to choose from when selecting a vm type.
