I can't get past Step 4 in the installation of SAS University Edition

I get this error message. Anyone know what it means?

 

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}

 

I have tried many times -- rebooted my computer -- all the normal stuff and I still can't get past this message. I'm not a super techie -- any help is appreciated.

Did you try googling the error? Smiley Happy

Sadly this means your computer may not support VM's.  

There are some workaround instructions in the third link.

Thank you very much...I called Lenovo's customer support and they told me how to modify the BIOS to enable VM. Then I went through the set-up process again and ... IT WORKED!  Again, many thanks!

What did Lenovo tell you to do?

@radair It may be worth posting a new question if you have issues. I'm assuming you have a LENOVO and are having issues with the BIOS setting?

Hello, @vipul1!

 

This SAS Note may be helpful to you: http://support.sas.com/kb/46/250.html. And here is the Lenovo support site: https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/. And an additional resource: http://www.smartpctricks.com/2013/05/solved-how-enable-virtualization-intel-vt-x-in-bios-lenovo-idea...

 

You may have luck searching on Google for your computer make and model with key words like enable virtualization. It's very likely that you'll find an article or YouTube video for the same type of computer.

 

Hope this helps!
