VT-x isn't available & No Hyper-V manager on Windows 10


When I used vagrant up to boot a VM, I found the following error ox80004005 (Note that I am using Oracle VM Virtualbox for the virtualization)

kayan@kayan-VirtualBox:~/vagrant/rpm$ vagrant up
Bringing machine 'default' up with 'virtualbox' provider...
==> default: Checking if box 'jhcook/fedora27' is up to date...

There was an error while executing `VBoxManage`, a CLI used by Vagrant
for controlling VirtualBox. The command and stderr is shown below.

Command: ["startvm", "769fc6c1-ea8d-46d8-8a7b-16989540d530", "--type", "gui"]

Stderr: VBoxManage: error: VT-x is not available (VERR_VMX_NO_VMX)
VBoxManage: error: Details: code NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005), component ConsoleWrap, interface IConsole

I am using 64-bit Windows 10. My processor is Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-7500U CPU @ 2.70 GHz.

To solve this error, I was suggested by someone that I should disable Hyper -v on my host windows machine. When I opted to disable Hyper -v feature, I found that there is no Hyper-v in my machine (strange!!!)

Screenshot: No option to enable or disable Hyper-v

I then used this command dism.exe /Online /Enable-Feature:Microsoft-Hyper-V /All to disable the hypervisor and I found this (Note: I run CMD as administrator).

If you are facing the problem in VirtualBox after the Windows 10 Founder's Update, you need to turn Core Isolation Memory Integrity back off again. The UI is bugged, here's how it can be done via. registry, navigate to below and set 0:

Hyper-V is not installed/available on windows 10 Home edition, which might be why you aren't seeing it.


You need to change your Bios settings to enable Virtualization. https://www.laptopmag.com/articles/access-bios-windows-10

Once enabled, you'll be good to go with VirtualBox.

(UPDATED) Oracle VM Virtualbox doesn't support nested 64-bit virtual machines.

My host machine is actually a 64-bit machine. I installed Oracle VM Virtualbox and installed a 64-bit Linux VM there. My target was to install another 64-bit Linux VM on that VM. Unluckily, Oracle VM Virtualbox doesn't provide us that support.

To solve this issue, I used VMWare to install the first VM. Then I installed Oracle VM Virtualbox on that VM and installed the second VM on VirtualBox.

I have same problem when i want to run emulator and thanks to bluedi solved this problem.

just disable Memory Integrity

"Settings" -> "Update & Security" -> "Windows Security" -> "Device Security" -> "Core Isolation" -> Turn it off

I tried these two solutions without luck:

  1. Enabling virtualization in BIOS
  2. Disabling (or enable, then disable) Hyper-V

What finally worked was running this privileged command:

bcdedit /set hypervisorlaunchtype off

Run that command with cmd in Administrator mode and reboot.
