Hopefully not posed on the wrong forum...
On an 8-core i7-4770 CPU on Windows10 I have this consistent error "Communication with VM Hypervisor failed. (6 CPU's)" since a couple of weeks. I tried re-installing VirtualBox (latest stand-alone version and the bundled version of BOINC+VirtualBox) a couple of times but nothing helps...
What can I do further to perform ATLAS simulations?

Best regards, Ernst

Try setting CPU to 4 and restart.

Have a look at Yeti's checklist for ATLAS: https://lhcathome.cern.ch/lhcathome/forum_thread.php?id=4302

And make shure you are using VirtualBox 5.1.x (30 or greater) but stay away from 5.2.x (I'm still running 5.1.30)


Supporting BOINC, a great concept !
