having problem in virtual box
got an error

Failed to open a session for the virtual machine windows.

VT-x is disabled in the BIOS. (VERR_VMX_MSR_VMXON_DISABLED)>:)


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

You can check it out

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

If it prints




You can check out the configuration in the vm settings but if it prints

No dice

You can check this site for more useful info (i hope)

it print vmx now what should i do next?

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

Shouldn’t this be in the Virtualization sub-forum? To assure that other users benifit from the question and it’s solution?

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

i have enabled it from BIOS then the problem still exists
