I cant run Avd in emulator - "PANIC: Unknown AVD name"

Cannot launch AVD in emulator.

PANIC: Unknown AVD name [Nexus_5_API_24], use -list-avds to see valid list.
ANDROID_SDK_HOME is defined but could not find Nexus_5_API_24.ini file in $ANDROID_SDK_HOME\.android\avd
(Note: avd is searched in the order of $ANDROID_AVD_HOME,$ANDROID_SDK_HOME\.android\avd and $HOME\.android\avd)

I have the following error:
"ERROR: x86 emulation currently requires hardware acceleration! Please ensure Intel HAXM is properly installed and usable. CPU acceleration status: HAX kernel module is not installed!"
The guys on the forum suggest that I should disable the hardware acceleration in my emulator. And as I can't  write my paper now, I'll submit the error to the support.
