I had this exact problem. With SAS University Ed powered off and selected in virtual box select settings - general - basic where you can select a 64 bit OS for SAS University Ed. 'Ubuntu (64 bit)' works for me there are others in drop down select box. I changed 'Ubuntu (32 bit)' to 'Ubuntu (64 bit)', and it worked!

Note: Selecting 'Red Hat (64 bit)' 64 bit OS for SAS University Ed also works and seemed faster and more stable-to-run in interactive mode compared to 'Ubuntu (64 bit)'. This has only been my 'brief' experience with Oracle VM VirtualBox with SAS University Ed.

Ghuman you need to enable virtualization from bios setting.

Hi @oabidov,

 

This troubleshooting topic in the SAS University Edition FAQ should help you find the information you need:  Why am I seeing an error stating that VT-x or AMD-v is not available?

 

Hope that helps!
