You need to enable VT in your BIOS.
I guess you are installing this on a laptop or PC?

Just restart the machine, startup the BIOS, look for the CPU setting and enable VT. Than you should be good to go.

Reboot your Hypervisor and enter on BIOS, then, search for virtualization features or VT features and enable them.
Other way can be set virtual machine as 32bit computer: https://pubs.vmware.com/vsphere-50/topic/com.vmware.vsphere.vm_admin.doc_50/GUID-3B66132C-F3E7-4F86-836F-80A03AC99E2A.html

This looks like a Nested environment, and the Intel VT Hardware flags are NOT being sent to the Virtual Machine.

If this is ESXi this is normal!

What is the VM ?

You will get the same error by default with VMware ESXi, if you install ESXi in ESXi!

Simplifying Server Workload Migrations

This use case outlines the migration challenges that organizations face and how the Acronis AnyData Engine supports physical-to-physical (P2P), physical-to-virtual (P2V), virtual to physical (V2P), and cross-virtual (V2V) migration scenarios to address these challenges.

Hello chaps,

Thanks for responding.

I'm running the machine from a website called baremetal.com. Therefore, I'm not sure I can get to the bios when I boot the machine.

Is it not possible to make the change while the server is live and then reboot?

Cheers

Hello Miguel,

Changing to 32bit worked liked a dream.

Thanks
