    Virtual Box and Ubuntu (64-bit)

    I setup a virtual machine for Ubuntu (64-bit) on Virtual Box after failing on Virtual PC due to it thinking I don't have a 64-bit processor. After setting up I mounted the ISO and soon after it auto-closed and I got this message:

    Code:
    Failed to open a session for the virtual machine Ubuntu.
    
    VT-x features locked or unavailable in MSR. (VERR_VMX_MSR_LOCKED_OR_DISABLED).
    
    Result Code: E_FAIL (0x80004005)
    Component: Console
    Interface: IConsole {1968b7d3-e3bf-4ceb-99e0-cb7c913317bb}
    I have no idea what this means or how to fix it. Can someone please help me? I had no problem running Ubuntu the last time I had it.

    Running 64 bit guests in Virtualbox requires a 64 bit processor and hardware virtualization support (VT-X/AMD-v).
    Say no to Microsoft. Say yes to open source.

    You probably have to enable VT-x in the BIOS (assuming your CPU has the feature).

    People have already responded.

    Enable virtualisation support in bios or make sure it is enabled in the VM settings.

    Or read the documentation http://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch0...ro-64bitguests
