If you are installing HP Helion OpenStack Community Edition using the Virtual Installation method, you must use a physical machine running Ubuntu as the host for the installation. You cannot attempt to follow these instructions using a virtual machine. The reason for this is because the Virtual Installation option creates the cloud using nested virtualization already, and adding another layer of virtualization is not supported (and would greatly impede the performance of the environment as well if it were possible). Also note that using the Virtual Installation method creates an environment that will not persist if the physical host machine is restarted (also due to the nested virtualization)
