I'm kind of new to virtual computers. I am getting this error message when I try to run a virtual system:

[Not in a hypervisor partition (HVP=0) (VERR_NEM_NOT_AVAILABLE).
VT-x is disabled in the BIOS for all CPU modes (VERR_VMX_MSR_ALL_VMX_DISABLED).

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

enter image description here


The error message is very clear in this case. Your CPU virtualization options are turned off in the BIOS.

You need to reboot in to the BIOS and Enable VT-x.

According to the manual: http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c06002345

"Turn on or restart the computer, quickly press esc, and then press f10."

Under the System Configuration Tab. Check if there is Virtualization Technology listed.

Enable it.
