1. Go into your BIOS, look for a Virtualisation setting and enable it.

Note: Names and categories in BIOS differ from manufacturer to manufacturer, but you should find a setting called “Virtualisation technology” or “virtualization harware“.

2. Restart your system and see if Genymotion is working. If not, follow on with the guide.

3. Find and open Oracle VM VirtualBox.

4. Select your Genymotion emulator, right-click on it and select Settings.

5. Click the General tab, expand the Basic tab and select the correct OS type and Version. Make sure to save changes.

6. Restart Genymotion and try again. Genymotion emulator should be working without errors.
