    Hi Shivanaag,

    Thanks for trying Hortonworks Sandbox.
    Assuming that you are using Virtual Box, check that this vm has VT-x enabled by going to Settings -> System -> Acceleration and make sure both options there are checked.

    Thanks,
    Ted.

    Hi, Shiva

    Can you please make sure the following:
    1. Your computer is 64Bit.
    2. Your operating system support 64Bit
    3. Make sure enable virtualization from bios.

    Hi,
    I have the same problem.

    After booting an error message apear saying “The kernel requires an X86-64 CPU, but only detected i686 CPU.
    UNABLE TO BOOT,PLEASE USE A KERNEL APPROPRIATE FOR YOUR CPU.”

    I can’t modify “acceleration label” in Virtual Box because it’s unavailable.

    I’m using Windows 7 64 bits.

    Anybody can help me, please ?

    Please enable the virtualization in BIOS upon booting.

    #16160

    Thanks for your answer, Larry.

    I can’t see anything about “virtualization” in my BIOS.

    What can I do ?

    Hi Ignacio,

    Can you please let us know which hardware/model and OS you are using?

    Hi,

    I’m using a PackardBell EasyNote TM86 and Windows 7 64 bits.

    I mailed to Support Service asking how can I enable virtualization technology in the BIOS and they answered me saying that this PC didn’t have that operation in the BIOS.

    Is it possible ???

    Hi, Ignacio

    If it is impossible to make it work on your current machine, maybe you have to use another machine for your virtualization.

    I am getting the error “A virtual system in the OVF file being uploaded requires unrecognized virtual hardware version.” when I try to load a .ovf file created from the .ova file into Vmware VCloud V 1.5

    May I suggest Hortonworks create the Sandbox VMs using an older machine which may compatable with more users.

    Don,
    Our Sandbox is not designed to be used in cloud services or on ESX machines…
    It only running on “desktop” systems (Fusion, VMWare Worksattion, VMPlayer).

    Thank you!
