    There was no mention of virtualization in the Bios
    Not true, it must be enabled in BIOS. https://downloads.dell.com/manuals/a...nual_en-us.pdf

    I did go to programs and features and I enabled virtualization there
    In Windows it must be disabled for virtbox & vmplayer to work.

    I just found virtualization in the BIOS and it is enabled. It is under advanced virtualization technology.
    Now the question is, should I disable hyper v?
    I will try and see if virtualization is still enabled b/c it is enabled in the BIOS but now I am not sure what is causing it to be enabled, windows features or the bios.

    >>Update = virtualization is off under windows hyper v but on in the BIOS and task manager.
    I assume this what you were referring to and thank you for the correction.
    Maybe I will have more luck with a VM.- not now though as I will wait to hear that I am good to go or not!.

    That sounds ok, now try registry change described in Help with VirtualBox and WIndows 10 build 1803 - Windows 10 Forums, restart and test creating VM.

    I forgot to mention I have Windows 8300 Pro not home as they are discussing in the link, but will go ahead.

    Registry change works in both Home & Pro editions. In Pro, you can use Group Policy instead, but in Home not.

    I also forgot to say I have 64 bit. I did read that the OP said he was only able to get 32 bit in VM; that was my case also.
    I do not understand what I am reading about the registry. I do not know what group policy is.
    Am I OK to build now, do I still need to make an adjustment or is this a test?

    >>I just found a thread which directed me to group policy and my says it needs to be turned on but I was leery about doing anything. Should I do so? If yes please give me the steps as I lost the thread that directed me there.

    Also I am reading where a lot of people are having trouble with 64 bit guests and can only make 32 bit.

    So should have I turned mine on when I was in group policy editor?
    I only ask b/c it seemed easy to follow the steps and I am having difficulty with the tutorial.

    >>I did the registry change you suggested and rebooted.
    1-what did I do?
    2-how would you suggest I handle my past and future Macriuum images with this reg change? (I did bookmark the page)
    3-can I now build a virtual box with 64 bit guests?

    Triple boot - Win 10 Pro, Win 10 Pro Insider (2) - (and a sprinkling of VMs)

    Just should mention. Hyper-V and Vmware, Virtual Box, or any other 3rd party are mutually exclusive. You cannot have Hyper-V enabled in Programs and Features, and use VMware, etc at the same time. MS restriction.
