Page 1 / 1

Symptom

When you run VMware, it display one or more of these error messages.

1) Binary translation is incompatible with long mode on this platform.
Disabling long mode. Without long mode support, the virtual machine will not able to run 64-bit code. For more details see http://vmware.com/info?id=152.

2) This virtual machine is configured for 64-bit guest operating systems.
However, 64-bit operation is not possible.
This host supports Intel VT-x, but VT-x is disabled.
Intel VT-x might be disabled if it has been disabled in the BIOS/firmware settings or the host has not been power-cycled since changing this setting.
(1) Verify that the BIOS/firmware settings enable Intel VT-x and disable 'trusted execution.'
(2) Power-cycle the host if either of these BIOS/firmware settings have been changed.
(3) Power-cycle the host if you have not done so since installing VMware Workstation.
(4) Update the host's BIOS/firmware to the latest version.

Cause

This error is simply because your processor doesn't support virtualization or that it is not enabled in the BIOS of your motherboard.

For information : All new processors support virtualization (VT-x Intel and AMD-V for AMD) but motherboard manufacturers do not always enable this feature by default.

 

Resolution

Simply turn on the virtualization of the processor (CPU) in the BIOS of your motherboard. To do this, follow our tutorial : "BIOS - Enable Virtualization (Intel VT-x / AMD-V)".
