    I have an HP 6730b laptop running Windows 7 and I have enabled Virtualization Technology in the BIOS but I still get the “VT-x is disabled error in BIOS” error when starting the sandbox in Oracle VM VirtualBox v4.3.2. All software was obtained via this link: http://hortonworks.com/products/hortonworks-sandbox/. Please advise.

    The cold boot did the trick. Thank you! Apparently a warm reboot is insufficient.

    Hi Patrick,

    Are you able to run other VMs? If not, please try a cold boot (shut down, turn off, turn on, start up) to ensure the virtualization set up is completely enabled.
