I`m wanting to install Ubuntu 13.10 on virtual machine(VirtualBox) but I got an error when I want to boot Ubuntu . .

This Kernel reguires the following features not pasent on the CPU: 
Unable to boot - olease use a kernel appropriate for your CPU

Can anybody help me?


It could be one of these problems

  1. Reboot your physical machine and go in your BIOS at start.

    Enable Intel VT (Virtualization Technology) or AMD-V (AMD Virtualization)

    depending on your processor's type.

  2. Run VirtualBox.exe, click Settings, select System in the left pane then go in

    Processor tab.

    Check Enable PAE/NX.

  3. This message could mean that you are trying to run a 64 Bits operating system with a

    non 64-Bits compatible processor.

    Recreate your Live USB using a standard 32 Bits ISO instead of a 64 Bits one.

hope it helps
