How to Fix “VBoxManage: error: AMD-V is disabled in the BIOS (or by the host OS)” When Virtualbox Starts

Image for post

There was an error while executing `VBoxManage`, a CLI used by Vagrantfor controlling VirtualBox. The command and stderr is shown below.Command: [“startvm”, “f1cd5563-6150-4968-b605-43b9a367a148”, “–type”, “headless”]Stderr: VBoxManage: error: AMD-V is disabled in the BIOS (or by the host OS) (VERR_SVM_DISABLED)VBoxManage: error: Details: code NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005), component ConsoleWrap, interface IConsole

AMD-V stands for AMD Virtualization. AMD-V enables you to run multiple virtual machines on a single machine. This error is telling you that your BIOS has AMD-V disabled. You need to re enable AMD-V to get rid of the error. To do so:

  1. Reboot and repeatedly press your BIOS System Settings key
  2. Open Advanced Settings or similar
  3. Open CPU settings
  4. Look for a virtualization option. Mine was labeled as SVM.
  5. Enable it
  6. Save and reboot into your OS
  7. You?re done!

I hope this fixed your problem. If it didn?t leave a comment and I?ll see if I can give you a hand
