Can't start SAS from Virtual box

I've just installed virtual box and SAS following the directions in the quick initialization pdf, but I can't start SAS. Each time I try to start it it gives me this message: 

Failed to open a session for the virtual machine SAS University Edition.

VT-x is disabled in the BIOS for all CPU modes (VERR_VMX_MSR_ALL_VMX_DISABLED).

Result Code:E_FAIL (0x80004005)
Component:ConsoleWrap
Interface:IConsole {872da645-4a9b-1727-bee2-5585105b9eed}

Maxim 6: Google is your friend.

Enter "sas UE VT-x is disabled in the BIOS" and follow the first hit.

There's also a lot of threads here, that covers this; use the search function to your advantage.
