    Re: Problems with 64 bit Oracle VM Virtual Box

    First of all, sorry it is taking me long time to reply, but my internet is killing me today, here is the screen dump you asked for:



    Don't ask why my desktop looks that way, I'm working on it, LOL!

    And when you say that it depends on my BIOS, and I am pretty sure that the virtualization option is not available in my BIOS, can i change it!? (And btw, I have a Toshiba satellite A505 laptop, and I usually download some stuff from the Toshiba website after I format my computer which is something that I do on regular basis, and one of the things that I download is a tool which allows me to update my BIOS, my version is 1.8, and I am sure it is the latest, but if there is any way that I can change my BIOS without any damage, I will sure do it.)

    Sorry this was long, and thanks for reading it all!

    you will need to look at your BIOS to see. I did a quick google on your model and found people asking same question, some say the option is in there and others are saying it isnt.

    I will leave you to find that out.

    If the option is in your bios to enable hardware virtualisation (VT) then enable it and you cna run 64 Bit OS as guests.

    IF you cant enable it then not much you can do as far as i know

    OK, thanks a lot my friend, you have been a great help for me, and hope you will still be, as for the VT option, I am absolutely sure it is not in BIOS, my BIOS is really simple compared to others, and although it have very few options, I have once spent more than half an hour looking for the VT option in it, and yet did not find it! (I wanted to try Ubuntu before I installed it on VMware, but it did not work, so I had to download the 32 bit version just to test it out, and with my 256k Internet connection, it took around 8 hours, hope I will not have to do the same with Windows!)

    no problem.

    try updating your BIOS to latest version.

    It is in the latest version, I have updated the BIOS around 10-15 days ago, and for a relatively old computer model like mine (I bought it 2 years ago), I don't guess another update is out, thanks anyways, and perhaps it is time to start saving and get a new laptop, I'm thinking of Toshiba Qosmio, or maybe a Dell laptop, I've been hearing they are better than Toshiba, but who knows!

    Thread moved to Virtualization.
    There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth...not going all the way, and not starting.

    I'm having similar troubles installing 64bit Windows OS'es under VirtualBox 4.1.2 (but it runs 32bit virtual machines quite well- possibly some sound issues but that's not a huge problem for me).

    My Phoenix 4.0 BIOS (Hewlett Packard F.34 version, 3/22/2011) was just upgraded yesterday (but the older F.32 BIOS also showed a Virtualization Technology "Enabled" setting). The F.34 BIOS still seems to throw the same Win7 "64bit" error under either VirtualBox or QEMU.

    I did just discover that there seems to be a conflict with the KVM Kernel Extension (which I will apparently need to remove from my Linux kernel to get VirtualBox to work)- see the attached screenshots.

    I think I'll try the new VMWare Sphere that I just downloaded tonight before I jump through all those hoops.

    EDIT: lsmod | grep kv tells me this:

    Module Size Used by
    kvm_amd 37070 0
    kvm 286527 1 kvm_amd
    and lsmod | grep vbox tells me:
    Module Size Used by
    vboxpci 14281 0
    vboxnetadp 5710 0
    vboxnetflt 16670 0
    vboxdrv 1853374 3 vboxpci,vboxnetadp,vboxnetflt
    It looks like I might be able to do a little blacklisting, but I'm going to build VMWare Tools first before I make any system changes.
