Enable Virtualization Technology To Install 64-bit OS In VirtualBox

Today, while I am installing hadoop on my local system I found an issue that I am not able to install ubuntu 64bit OS while my host is 64bit windows 10 operating system.

After installing successful Oracle VM virtual box I am trying to install ubuntu 64bit, I can’t find that option.

Oracle VM

This was annoying because I do have 64 bit OS and I could not use.

Let’s make some change in BIOS. Restart the system and press F10 for BIOS.

Go to system configuration tab. You will find visualization technology as disabled.

system configuration tab

Turn it Enabled. Select virtualization technology row and press enter.

Turn it Enabled

Press enter.

Press enter

Press F10 for save the changes and exit.

Press F10

Now I am able to select ubuntu 64 bit when I create virtualbox.
