Ubuntu 16.10 doesn't work in Virtual Machine. It gets installed though, but when powered on, it gives an error "Guest OS has disabled the CPU, Please power down or restart" Even though I upgrade a VM of ubuntu 16.04 to 16.10 same happens. Please Help!

All previous versions of ubuntu work fine on my VMware.
