    Error: Module 'Monitor' power on failed. Failed to start the virtual machine.

    Kaonashi42 Lurker

      Hello,

       

      Edit:

      I did install Valorant before having the problem.

       

       

      So I have been trying to create virtual machine with VMware workstation 15 pro and was not able to power it on.

       

      Here is the message I get when i use "power on this virtual machine":

      This virtual machine failed to switch to 64 bit mode. This failure might be due to a lack of available memory on the host.

      Module 'Monitor' power on failed.

      Failed to start the virtual machine.

      I am using:

      - Ubuntu LTS 18.04 iso

       

      My computer has:

      - Windows 10 Education

      - 16Gb RAM

      - More than 100Gb of free space (hard disk)

      - Motherboard: an asrock phantom

      - CPU: amd ryzen 5 3600x

      - Antivirus: Windows defender

       

      I have tried:

      - Rebooting

      - Updating windows (normal updates)

      - Keeping the default parameters while creating the vm

      - Limiting the RAM to 250mb

      - limiting the hard disk to 1Gb

      - Checking that SVM and SMT are enabled for virtualization in the Bios

      - Using VMware workstation Player 15, same issue

      - Using virtualbox with the same configuration, it is working

      - enabling/disablings Windows Hyper-V

      - Disabling windows defender my firewalls

       

      Here is my vmware.log file:

      I cannot seem to find any related issues or solutions that fits my problem.

       

      Thank you in advance for any help provided.
