Can't install -- Stops right after Host Machine

My installation stops right after i get a check mark for Host Machine. i get an error message saying something to the effect, “this computer doesn’t have VT-X/AMD-v enables. Enabling it in the bios is mandatory.”

Does anyone know what I should do?


When you start your computer, go into your BIOS setup. In there should be an option to enable the Virtual Technology in your CPU. Intel names it VT-X and AMD is AMD-v.

Depending on your configuration, and age of your computer these option may not be there. If you need to find out how to get into the BIOS setup, just google it for your computer model.

Hi Mike,

I had the same problem which is now resolved. If you also have an ASUS motherboard this video guides you through what you need to do:

Having said that… I’m onto my next problem. I’m not getting the usual default wordpress data from the initial installation :frowning: Here’s the link to this post in case you also experience similar: Lost default pages: “About Us”, “Contact”, “Blog” etc

Good luck, we seem to need it!
