    You may need to install a different version of VirtualBox (you need to match the VBox version to your operating system — e.g., 32-bit VirtualBox install on a 32-bit system) or you may need to enable virtualization at the bios level on your computer.

    Please refer to the VirtualBox Forums for more details: https://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?t=8669
