Failed to open a session for the virtual machine

I am using Windows 7 and Oracle Virtual Box. Yesterday I downloaded the most recent versions of Virtual Box and SAS University Edition.

I got as far as the following.

Start SAS University Edition in Oracle VM VirtualBox

To start SAS University Edition in VirtualBox:

1) In VirtualBox, select the SAS University Edition virtual image in the left column, and then select Machine > Start.

I then received the following error message. Any ideas?

AMD-V is disabled in the BIOS (or by the host SO)

Failed to open a session for the virtual machine SAS-University-Edition_1.

AMD-V is disabled in the BIOS (or by the host OS). (VERR_SVM_DISABLED).

Result Code: E_FAIL (0x80004005)

Component: Console

Interface: IConsole {8ab7c520-2442-4b66-8d74-4ff1e195d2b6}

Hi irasharenow100,

 

We have a troubleshooting topic in the FAQ that might be of some help:

Why am I seeing an error stating that VT-x or AMD-v is not available?

 

Let us know if this works for you.

thanks,

Jennifer
