Virtual box VM error on windows 7

I got this error when I tried to start the vdi downloaded for linux x64 on a virtual box host.
VM Name: HomeAssistant

The native API dll was not found (C:\Windows\system32\WinHvPlatform.dll) (VERR_NEM_NOT_AVAILABLE).

VT-x is not available (VERR_VMX_NO_VMX).

Result Code: E_FAIL (0X80004005)
Component: ConsoleWrap
Interface: IConsole {6ac83d89-6ee7-4e33-8ae6-b257b2e81be8}

Since I’ve never run Home Assistant on any Virtual environment, I can’t offer much help.

You may get more results by posting your question on the Virtual Box forums because that sounds like a Windows or Virtual Box problem.

Let’s be clear- you are trying to run Home Assistant on a Virtualbox on Windows 7? (OK Boomer).
Have you been able to run any other OS on VirtualBox, like Ubuntu Linux?
