Ticket #10694 (new defect)
VirtualBox claims I do not have VT-x support.
|Reported by:||Inirit||Owned by:|
I am receiving this error when trying to launch a Windows 8 64-bit VM for the first time:
VT-x/AMD-V hardware acceleration has been enabled, but is not operational. Your 64-bit guest will fail to detect a 64-bit CPU and will not be able to boot.
Please ensure that you have enabled VT-x/AMD-V properly in the BIOS of your host computer.
It is claiming I do not have VT-x enabled, which I know for a fact that I do and that my hardware supports it.
Proof that my CPU supports it: http://ark.intel.com/products/65520/Intel-Core-i5-3570K-Processor-%286M-Cache-up-to-3_80-GHz%29
Proof that my BIOS settings are correct: http://i.imgur.com/m7jd7.jpg
I've updated my BIOS to the most recent version and am using the most recent version of VirtualBox. I've searched for similar problems to mine and have only found a solution of disabling a "trusted execution" setting, but my processor does not even have that feature.
