Controlling VirtualBox from the Command Line

When I try to start my new VM I get this error.

server1@server1:~$ VBoxManage startvm roy --type=headless Waiting for VM "roy" to power on... VBoxManage: error: VT-x is disabled in the BIOS for all CPU modes (VERR_VMX_MSR_ALL_VMX_DISABLED) VBoxManage: error: Details: code NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005), component ConsoleWrap, interface IConsole

ubuntu stuck on login page – can’t login with keyboard

I don’t know why but my ubuntu session got stuck at the login page suddenly and I can’t ge through any longer. When starting the VM, i get the following screen :

enter image description here

I’ve tried CTRL+ALT+F1 and CTRL+ALT+F7 but no luck… my keyboard and mouse aren’t working. I’ve also tried CTRL+ALT+F3 and ran

sudo apt install --reinstall ubuntu-desktop

sudo apt install --reinstall ubuntu-session

but still the same.

enter image description here

I’m wondering what’s wrong and what I can do. If ever it is not possible to recover my session, is there a way to create another VM with the disk of this one… i’d hate to loose everything.
