Can’t run Virtualbox VM

Windows 10

Virtualbox v6.1

When trying to run newly created VM the following Virtualbox error is generated:

WHvCapabilityCodeHypervisorPresent is FALSE! Make sure you have enabled the 'Windows Hypervisor Platform' feature. (VERR_NEM_NOT_AVAILABLE).
VT-x is not available (VERR_VMX_NO_VMX).
Result Code:
E_FAIL (0x80004005)
IConsole {872da645-4a9b-1727-bee2-5585105b9eed}

To fix ensure the following Window Features are disabled and VT-x is enabled in the BIOS:

  • Hyper-V
  • Virtual Machine Platform
  • Windows Hypervisor platform
  • Containers

Finally run the following Command Prompt command:

bcdedit /set hypervisorlaunchtype off

Restart the computer

Note: When VT-x is first enabled the PC should be powered off and on again
