Oke I know it’s been a while, let me explain…
First of all I had major computer problems, my virtual boxes where all corrupted or so it appeared. After some back and forward mailing with Oracle (yeah help desk actually replies) they said the problems I had could only be solved by a format.
What problems you ask?
Well, I’m running windows 8.1 64bit so I can have 64bit virtual machines, but virtual box did say I’m only allowed to 32bit and virtualization isn’t available.
What!?! For those that don’t know, virtualization need to be enabled in the bios of your system. So checked that and it was on.
Oracle gave me tips, also I asked 2 lectors of me, and they hadn’t a clue either. Final mail from Oracle, sorry only thing we can think off is to format you system. Tum tum tummmmmmm…
So I did, whoop give the inventor of SSD a statue! It installs fast, I installed all my software again and then virtual box: yes it worked!
Next day it failed again :s same problems, I was in distress now, what had changed? I couldn’t figure it out.
Remember that I told you at the start of the blog I was in school too? Well our lectors where dumping sh*t load of work on us. That is passed for now, I can focus again bit more on other projects, like this blog.
I was telling a friend of me the problem that I had (friend is an understatement tbh, Gunther is my best friend for over 20 years now, yeah I know we are old timers whit our 30y +), while I was formatting my newer laptop for school purposes he was Googling for me (I had done that multiple times, but hey 4 eyes see more then 2) he found lots of things but nothing that I didn’t find. Virtual box was working on the laptop now and I was glad, I had the plan now first of all install virtual box then test it and then start installing other software one by one. Then bam, virtual box was failing again, after installing Visual studio 2013… That’s when I saw in the install files that it installs a newer version of hyper-v. Whit that added in the Google troubleshooting search I came on a tech post that tells u to disable hyper-v and it should work.
Simply open your windows PowerShell and be sure you are admin or have the rights to and execute following command: bcdedit /set hypervisorlaunchtype off
Now all works!
The Lamp stack post follows soon now, then I gone do less bigger setups so there will be a bit more posts.
Take care all!
Ps: you were wondering if my virtual projects were damaged? Nope they all are running fine 😀
