On Windows platform, when I start my VM in VirtualBox, VirtualBox throws an error Error: “amd-v is disabled in bios”
Go to BIOS setting by restarting and enable Virtualization Technology Under the Menu option called System Configuration.
On Windows 8 platform, launching my VM in VirtualBox, VirtualBox shows the error "VT-x/AMD-V hardware acceleration is not available. Your 64-bit guest will fail to detect a 64-bit CPU and will not be able to boot."
Intel VT-x may be disabled, particularly on a new machine. First check Microsoft Hyper-V is not installed and interfering, then check BIOS/UEFI firmware to ensure VT-x is enabled. This link provides a good step by step guide to check and fix VM acceleration features.
On Windows VM host, the Ubuntu guest is not connected to the internet
Network connections -> Virtual Box Host Only connection -> Select "Properties" -> Check VirtualBox Bridged Networking Driver.
Now, internet on guest should work, see link.
