    Enable Virtualization for Windows 10 Pro running inside VirtualBox

    Virtualbox does not expose the Intel VT extensions to the virtual machines. Thus, you cannot use these extensions in a Virtualbox or a hypervisor running in a Windows in VirtualBox.

    • When you activate the VT extensions in the host Virtualbox, that hypervisor uses these extensions to support the virtualization
    • However, although you have activated the extension, the guest OS running in Virtualbox cannot use these extensions.

    Nowadays, Docker for Windows uses Hyper-V (the hypervisor provided by Microsoft). Hyper-V supports "nested-virtualization", i.e. You can run hyper-V in a guest OS accessing the Intel VT extensions exposed by the host Hyper-V.

    If you are not interested on using Hyper-V on the guest and the host at the same time, you can consider VMware Workstation. This hypervisor [supports Intel VT emulation][3]. You can run an operating system that use these extensions in a virtual machine in VMware.

    Running Virtualbox+Vagrant inside of WSL2 with nested virtualization

    WSL2 for windows

    I have failed into installing WSL for Windows. I have read here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/win.../install-win10 how to do it, and at step 4:


    1. Download the latest package:
      [COLOR=var(--text)][COLOR=var(--info-dark)] Note[/COLOR]
      If you're using an ARM64 machine, please download the ARM64 package instead. If you're not sure what kind of machine you have, open Command Prompt or PowerShell and enter: systeminfo | find "System Type".
      [/COLOR]
    2. Run the update package downloaded in the previous step. (Double-click to run - you will be prompted for elevated permissions, select ‘yes’ to approve this installation.)

    I encountered:

    What I did wrong ? I have the following W10 version:
