Dear Manish,

Thank you, my system is an i386 HP pavilion laptop.
I already did all these yesterday and even enabled virtualization in bios
as well. And also did this below
dmesg | grep POPCNT
And the system shows that it supports SVM and vmm.

If your board has VM feature (named something like SVM)...
How do I enable these?

What else could you think is the problem.
