Problem :

Facing the AMD-V is disabled in the BIOS (or by the host OS) (VERR_SVM_DISABLED) error message while trying to start the virtual machine using  my VM VirtualBox. I am facing this issue on my Windows 7 machine.

Solution :

Below is the list with common culprits that many other affected users have managed to identify:

· AMD-V is disabled from BIOS settings – In this case, the VERR_SVM_DISABLE error code is telling you that the PC does support AMD-V, but your host’s BIOS settings are currently disabling it.

· Microsoft Hyper-V is interfering with the AMD-V technology – If your Hyper-V is enabled, it clearly means that your built-in virtualization technology was turned off. In this case, now you will need to disable it to allow the AMD-V to pe used.

· BIOS version doesn’t support this many CPU cores – In this case, the issue might get thrown by the VM VirtualBox if your software is forced to create the virtual machine with the more than 1 CPU core. In order to do that, it requires the hardware virtualizations and it will throw the error if the feature is disabled or is unavailable.


Hope this helps you in resolving your issue.
