Hi Im trying to run a Kali Linix virtual machine but when i start the machine it gives me this error

Result Code: NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005) Component: MachineWrap Interface: IMachine {b2547866-a0a1-4391-8b86-6952d82efaa0} and then an error message shows uo that the kernel driver not installed (rc=-1908) I tried to make a virtual machine for Kali Linux but when i start the machine this message popes out

(Failed to open a session for the virtual machine Kali Linux. The virtual machine 'Khali Linux' has terminated unexpectedly during startup with exit code 1 (0x1). Result Code: NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005) Component: MachineWrap Interface: IMachine {b2547866-a0a1-4391-8b86-6952d82efaa0}) shortly a new massage pops that i need to run the following command as root to get things working

/sbin/vboxconfig but when i execute the command this message shows up in the terminal

vboxdrv.sh: Building VirtualBox kernel modules. This system is not currently set up to build kernel modules (system extensions). Running the following commands should set the system up correctly:

yum install kernel-core-devel-4.7.5-200.fc24.x86_64 (The last command may fail if your system is not fully updated.) yum install kernel-core-devel vboxdrv.sh: failed: Look at /var/log/vbox-install.log to find out what went wrong. This system is not currently set up to build kernel modules (system extensions). Running the following commands should set the system up correctly:

yum install kernel-core-devel-4.7.5-200.fc24.x86_64 (The last command may fail if your system is not fully updated.) yum install kernel-core-devel

There were problems setting up VirtualBox. To re-start the set-up process, run /sbin/vboxconfig as root. all the packages named in the command can not be found, although i got the RPB Fusion installed is there any steps to activate RPM Fusion after installation?or what is the situation here?

Failed to open a session for the virtual machine Kalii.

VT-x is disabled in the BIOS for all CPU modes (VERR_VMX_MSR_ALL_VMX_DISABLED).

Result Code: NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005) Component: ConsoleWrap Interface: IConsole {872da645-4a9b-1727-bee2-5585105b9eed}

i tried to reinstall the whole thing and reinstalled it using the terminal

You need to install VirtualBox using rpmfusion.org installing akmod, that way on each kernel update it rebuild the virtualbox kernel module.

Will recommend you to use kvm and virtual-manager to manage your virtualmachines instead of VirtualBox which is free, but not Free Software.

That message means that you have disabled virtual machine on you BIOS you need to enter you Bios and enable vt-x.

Also make sure you are not using UEFI
