    User reports on Twitter they receive error: anyone get the vt-x error while trying to run #hortonworkssandbox @hortonworks using VirtualBox?

    Note from Hortonworks: Jack, please provide more details here. What version of Vbox, which OS and version, which browser.

    Thanks, Cheryle

    Hi Cheryle,

    It seems like i first need to upgrade my bios because the current one i have does not support virtualization. Other people with my same laptop had the same problem http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/IdeaPad-Y-U-V-Z-and-P-series/Y650-virtualization-Intel-VT-SOLVED/td-p/180339 .

    Thank you! I will keep you updated once i upgrade my bios.

    HI Jack,

    is your hardware enabled for virtualization? Are you running other virtualization layers?

    The VBox docs says this about the error https://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?t=8669:
    You need a 64-bit processor with hardware virtualization support (see User Manual chapter 1.2, Software vs. hardware virtualization (VT-x and AMD-V), page 10) and a 64-bit host operating system.
    NOTE: Since version 2.1.0, you can run 64 bit Guests while running a 32 bit Host. The prior requirement for Operating System is only for version 2.0.x. You still need the proper hardware.

    Thanks Jack. Were you running any other virtualization layer on the computer when you got the vt-x error? If you can reproduce the error can you please provide the full text of the error message? Looking at the Virtualbox forums, looks like there are several vt-x error conditions.

    Thanks

    I got it to work on a different computer. I am running windows 7(64-bit) on both and used virtualbox 4.2.6. I am not sure what causes it malfunction on the first computer i tried it on, but it might be the RAM(first = 4gb, second = 6gb).
    Thanks,
    Jack
