Starting SAS University Edition VirtualBox Error

Hi ... I am new to SAS and after installing VirtualBox and resolving the VT-x issue, when I attempt to start SAS in VirtualBox I get another error saying: Press F12 to select boot device.  This kernel requires an x86-64 CPU but only detected an i686 CPU.  Unable to boot.

 

I am running Windows 8.1 on a 64 bit i-7 HP laptop (Spectre) ... how can I boot the SAS machine in VirtualBox?  Thanks in advance

Hi jburman,

There is a troubleshooting topic as well as a SAS Installation Note that might help with this error:

What is a "This kernel requires an x86-64 CPU" error?

Installation Note 53263

 

thanks,

Jennifer
