Vagrant Issues on Windows

Hi Everyone,

People who are struggling with vagrant up on their windows like:

Here are the possible solutions:

Here is what I did. I have a Windows7 SP1 machine.

  1. I downloaded the latest versions of vagrant and virtual box.
  2. I updated poweshell from 2 to 3 using the instructions here:
  3. I enabled the virtualization in the BIOS (on my machine is was under device configuration)

People who are struggling with the following error:

Command: [“startvm”, “d3da0d72-3297-4e35-b301-23c8cfb4db96”, “–type”, "headless "]

Stderr: VBoxManage.exe: error: VT-x is not available (VERR_VMX_NO_VMX) VBoxManage.exe: error: Details: code E_FAIL (0x80004005), component ConsoleWrap, interface IConsole

Please try these steps and let me know if nothing works:

  • Enable virtualization in the BIOS.
  • Make sure you have Hyper-V turned off in Windows 10 For Windows 10: Press Windows key. Type “Turn Windows features on or off” Deselect checkbox next to Hyper-V. Select OK. Select Restart now.

I hope it helps! Will keep this post updated as I see more solutions.
