Type the following command as root to verify that host cpu has support for AMD - V technology:

# grep --color svm /proc/cpuinfo

If the output has the svm flags, then AMD CPU host is capable of running hardware virtualization. Then check in your system BIOS if the virtualization is enabled.

Your system does not support AMD-V. So that unchecked Enabled VT-x/AMD-V.

You got your problem resolved.
