I'm facing below error while opening HDP sandbox with Oracle VM.


Failed to open a session for the virtual machine vm.

VT-x is disabled in the BIOS for all CPU modes (VERR_VMX_MSR_ALL_VMX_DISABLED).

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

You must have a CPU with the VT-x features enabled, which is typically done via the BIOS. Can you please confirm the same?

- VT-x is a hardware feature in most modern CPUs. It is can be enabled/disabled in the BIOS of your computer. If you do not have the feature, then Virtualization won't work (VMWare or VirtualBox). You can read more here at this link:
