    Hi,

    I’ve just installed the sandbox but really struggling with getting a virtual machine to run and getting the message “Vt-x not available”. I have done some research which suggests changing settings in BIOS, but the BIOS for my machine doesn’t mention anything about virtualisation.

    Is it possible that I cannot run the sandbox at all on my machine as it won’t support virtualisation (it is quite old, originally purchased in 2005, running on Windows XP)? I do appreciate this may not be enough information – let me know what specs I need to share for a solution.

    Hi Liam,

    Here is a web page that tells you how to check if your cpu support VT-x http://www.intel.com/support/processors/sb/cs-030729.htm
    Also here is a list of the system requirements to run the Sandbox – all must be met:
    Now runs on 32-bit and 64-bit OS (Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Mac OSX)
    Minimum 4GB RAM
    Virtualization enabled on BIOS

    Thanks,
    Ted.
