Oracle VM VirtualBox: Oracle VM VT-x/AMD-V hardware acceleration is not available on your system

I have Dell XPS 13 9350 laptop and I needed to install few virtual machine to it using
Oracle VirtualBox software but when I tried to install example Windows 10 or Kali Linux I alwas got error message
which said:

“VT-x/AMD-V hardware acceleration has been enabled, but is not operational. Your 64-bit guest will fail
to detect a 64-bit CPU and will not be able to boot.

Please ensure that you have enabled VT-x/AMD-V properly in the BIOS of your host computer.”

VT-x/AMD-V hardware acceleration has been enabled, but is not operational. Your 64-bit guest will fail to detect a 64-bit CPU and will not be able to boot. Please ensure that you have enabled VT-x/AMD-V properly in the BIOS of your host computer.

VirtualBox VT-x/AMD-V hardware acceleration error

To fix this you have to boot your laptop and go to bios and remove check mark from “Enable CPU XD Support”:

Security -> CPU XD Support -> Enable CPU XD Support

“This option enables or disables the Execute Disable Mode of the Processor. The operating system can use this feature to hinder software that exploits buffer overflows”

After that Windows 10, Kali Linux and other virtual machines on Oracle VM VirtualBox worked perfectly.
Comment and let me know if this worked for you. Especially with different operating systems and so on.

    Throughout the great design of things you’ll receive an A+ for effort. Where you actually lost me was on all the facts. As people say, details make or break the argument.. And it couldn’t be more true right here. Having said that, permit me reveal to you exactly what did do the job. The article (parts of it) is certainly really powerful which is probably why I am taking the effort in order to comment. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Second, while I can certainly notice the leaps in reasoning you come up with, I am not really sure of exactly how you seem to unite the details which in turn produce the conclusion. For right now I will subscribe to your issue however trust in the future you actually connect your facts better.
