Does the following error look familiar?
If so, you are getting this error because of the Hyper-V mode in Windows. There are two steps to fix this problem:
- The first is to disable Hyper-V mode from the Windows control panel. Take a look at the answers to this question, which is the same problem you are encountering. Disabling Hyper-V is different on different Windows versions, but following the answer to the question above you should be able to find your solution. That said, also make sure you do step 2 below as well.
- The second is to check your BIOS. The next time you boot your system, go into the BIOS and ensure that Virtualization is enabled (normally it’s under some sort of “advanced setting”). If virtualization is not enabled, then the VM will not be able to boot.
Some Windows systems can be a little finicky regarding virtualization. But by following the above two steps you’ll be good to go!
