I have been trying to import solaris 11 on VM virtual box and this i have successfully completed. But while trying to open the solaris OS, i got the error message that "VT-x/AMD-V hardware accelerator is not avilable on your system. Your 64-bit guest will fail to detect a 64-bit CPU and will not be able to boot". Can someone please tell me what this error is actually saying and how to overcome it.
What host os and CPU are you using? The message states that you need virtualization hardware support in the CPU (Intel VT-x or AMD-V) in order to run that 64 bit guets OS. Reasons for this error (that I could think of) could be:
- you have a very old cpu
- you have disabled virtualization in your bios
- you are running a 32-bit host os
