VMware player 16 crashes on start

Jump to solution

I have installed vmare player 16 on Linux Mint 20 and it is failing to open a VM image that I have already created with an earlier VMware version on this same machine.

I found this message in the log " Power on failure messages: This host supports Intel VT-x, but Intel VT-x is disabled."  does this mean that my hardware is too old to run VMware 16?  I am running an Intel i5-4300M.  

Thanks for any imput.

Probably not.

Instead it means that you need to turn on virtualization ON your computer BIOS. With older versions of VMware, this wasn't necessary, but now it is.

You also may need to turn Virtualization options ON in your VM. You are not saying what your VM OS is, but at least "performance counters" seems necessary for Win 10 use - it is OS specific to my knowledge.
