Hyper-V cannot be installed: The processor does not have the required virtualization capabilities

I have a Windows Server 2016 virtual machine running on VirtualBox and I am trying to add the Hyper-V role on that VM using the Add roles and features wizard. I get the following error message after i click install.

Hyper-V cannot be installed: The processor does not have the required virtualization capabilities

On the VM setting unders System->Acceleration i have the following settings:

Paravirtualization Interface: Hyper-V

Hardware Virtualization: Enable VT-x/AMD-v (checked)

 Enable Nested Paging (checked)


Is there any other settings i need to change?

Open Powershell in your virtual machine and run the following two commands and then restart your VM.

Enable-WindowsOptionalFeature –Online -FeatureName Microsoft-Hyper-V –All -NoRestart

Install-WindowsFeature RSAT-Hyper-V-Tools -IncludeAllSubFeature

Hello there, it worked but there are no Components running in service for creating  VM in Hyper-V, that it not help well. That is frustrating :(
