I am a Coursera student. I am running VMware Workstation 12 Player on Windows 10. I am trying to open the virtual machine ‘QuickStart VMs for
CDH 5.4.x’. When I attempt to “play the virtual machine”, the screen in VMware goes black for about 2 seconds, and then immediately returns to
the Welcome to VMware screen, and the Cloudera Live environment never starts, even after 10 minutes. I have rebooted and tried the whole start
up process again, but get the same results. Any other ideas on how I get the CDH 5.4 to play?

The zip file seemed to load down and unzip successfully. I think the problem may well be with virtualization NOT enabled in BIOS.
However, I am having a difficult time figuirng out how to get to BIOS to make the change. I am running Windows 10 on an HP Spectre
(Intel Core i7-5500U CPU@ 2.40 GHz 2.40 GHz). I don't know the command to get access to BIOS. I have a SSD, and the system boots up
very quickly, so doesn't allow much time to hit any keys such as ESC, F10, etc. as suggested in some forums I have read.

Here is the data sheet for your processor - it has VT-X support but it may need to be enabled:
When I reboot my Windows machine, there is a prompt to enter the BIOS or Setup menu - I have to press F10
within a few seconds of the prompt and then a menu appears. Look for the VT or Virtualization option. In some
cases it can be found by navigating through the menus as follows:
Security > OS Security > Intel Virtualization Technology
Try to reboot your machine and see if such a prompt appears. If not, there will be another way to do it, will have to read up.
There are lots of youtube videos and posts on this topic, e.g.:

Hello, I have the same problem, but even though virtualisation is enabled in my system, the vm won't play. Is there any other reason you can think of?
It's the Cloudera Quickstart VM 188.8.131.52. I'm running it on Windows 10.
