Hey @Ali, Seems like you have to enable virtualization in the BIOS of your local system.

Hope this helps:)

There could be two main possibilities for this error:

  • The hardware acceleration feature may be disabled which in most cases disables by default or
  • if you have Hyper V installed it takes up most of the hardware acceleration features and virtualization won't work
possible solutions:
  • Try uninstalling Hyper V
  • turn Intel VT-x on in your BIOS

Adding to @kalgi's answer, Also make sure you have 64GB system. If you have 32GB system then try allocating less 3GB space to the Virtual machine as a 32GB system will not have enough resources to supply the VM.

To turn Intel VT-x on in your BIOS, follow these steps:

  • Restart your system
  • Press the appropriate key during reboot. This appropriate key depends on the computer's manufacturer. In most of the cases, it's either f2 or Delete
  • Go to settings once the system starts -> Advanced CPU configuration -> processor -> Intel Virtualization Technology -> enable that option -> Save and Exit
  • Reboot your system.
