Good evening, everyone active in the Forum
I read a lot of documentation about proxmox building a VM on the network, but it didn't help me. I'm stupid. I can't even install a virtual machine. I know this PVE system for the first time, and I am unfamiliar with it. In this part, I spent two days trying to solve it myself. Limited knowledge, I can't solve this problem, you can give me some suggestions. If I can, I need a primer on proxmox as a reference Thanks!

Virtual machine configuration information


This is its log error message. I can read the error message, but I don't know how to do it

The last screenshot shows the real issue. Your system currently does not supports hardware accelerated virtualization.

* It is just enabled in UEFI/BIOS settings of the firmware, check there and enable virtualization support (it's called a bit different on every Hardware)
* your system really does not supports it. Then you could go for the slower emulation by disabling KVM hardware virtualization in the VM options:

But as said, this will be a lot slower - so try to enable the VT capabilities in the BIOS first.

What CPU and motherboard do you use?

God, I didn't think of the BIOS of the physical motherboard. When I first came into contact with VMware, I had a similar problem. I was stupid. To make such a mistake。
Your suggestion is very good, which makes me successfully solve this obstacle
Thank you very much!
