The model of the processor on the system does not support creating construct. This error typically occurs with older processors. See SQL Server Books Online for information on supported models.

Memory-optimized tables require a processor model that supports atomic compare-and-exchange operations on 128-bit values, which require the assembly instruction CMPXCHG16B. Certain older AMD processor models do not support the CMPXCHG16B instruction. Also, certain virtualization environments do not enable this instruction by default.

Upgrade your processor. If your processor supports the instruction and you are running SQL Server in a virtual machine, change the configuration to support the instruction CMPXCHG16B.
