Quick Start VM-These are 64-bit VMs, and require a 64-bit host OS

The Quick Start VM has a Notice: These are 64-bit VMs, and require a 64-bit host OS and a virtualization product that can support a 64-bit guest OS.

 

It is not enough just to have a 64-bit host OS, but the host OS is required to support hardware virtualization. Installing the Quick Start VM on Oracle VirtualBox installed on a 64-bit host OS might still generate an error.  

 

To be able to install the Quick Start VM the following two requirements are prerequisite.

  1. A host OS which supports hardware virtualization. The CPU processor is required to support either the Intel Virtualization Technology (VT-x) (http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/virtualization/virtualization-technology/hardware-assist-virt... or AMD Virtualization Technology (AMD-V) (http://sites.amd.com/us/business/it-solutions/virtualization/Pages/virtualization.aspx).
  2. Virtualization support should be enabled in the BIOS. 

 

Some software tools are available to test if a platform supports Intel Virtualization Technology. The Intel Processor Identification Utility (http://www.intel.com/support/processors/tools/piu/sb/CS-014921.htm) may be used to test if the CPU supports Intel Virtualization Technology. On Windows systems hardware support for virtualization may also be tested with Microsoft Hardware-Assisted Virtualization Detection Tool (http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=592). 

 

Virtualization support must also be enabled in the BIOS. Some Windows systems that do not support hardware virtualization in the processor may have a “Virtualization” option in the BIOS, which is not the same as the Virtualization Support option for Intel Virtualization Technology
