Hi Joseph E Ahard,

You have to enable your virtual hardware support in order for your virtual machine to be start completely and smoothly. To turn it on,  go to the bios setup on its boot up process of your computer and press F2 or F8, on the boot up screen. After getting into the bios setup, Enable the DEP: Advance > processor options > no execute memory.
