Do you have a cellphone with Android OS? If so, use it instead of emulator.

Well, I think you don't have VT enabled, this picture just shows that your processor supports it. 

Enter your BIOS and there should be something like "Virtualization..." and make sure its enabled, save it and exit. And be sure, that you installed HAXM manually and not via SDK manager.

Your BIOS is only accessible from the boot screen.  Is that where you accessed it from?

I also encountered the same problem but I fixed it by installing this Intel® Hardware Accelerated Execution Manager program.

Link :

I started the emulator, but it did take a long time, but in the end the program appeared and android Lollipop booted up.

Hope this fixes your problem!

The funny thing was that I had already installed  "Intel x86 Emulator Accelerator (HAXM installer)" in the SDK manager.

If you are using an anti-virus,  make sure that you uncheck "Enable hardware-assissted virtualization". I am using avast, and if you are too, then go to Settings -> Troubleshooting -> uncheck enable hardware-assisted virutalization.

I agree with @Branislav Lazic, so if you want to use your own phone, here the link that explains everything.

So i tried to install the "intelhaxm" but i get this error

But the thing is that Vt is enabled :S


Any ideas??? Thanks a lot

I got the same error message but after reading some forum posts, i was able to make the emulator work.  You need to enable virtualization technology (VT) for Intel mobo's in your BIOS.  Once you've done that you should be able to install and run the emulator with no problems.

Hope this helps.
