    Hello Yowan,

    No, you should be able to install a 32-bit guest on your 64-bit host without the need of hardware virtualization. You might start over to see if something mau have just gone wrong the first time. I have added additional information to the tutorial that may help.

    Hello Josh,

    I think most of it will be the issue in the red warning box at the top of the tutorial. I have added additional information in the tutorial to hopefully help with the most common issues.

    Hello Danny,

    Do you have hardware virtualization enabled?

    Mmm. Is anyone else having the situation of having to reinstall Windows 8 if you do a Windows 8 shutdown, and then exit VBox? Perhaps I duffed soemthing up.....but I have been running Vbox and Ubuntu for a while now, and not seen that.

    Hi Shawn

    I've no idea how would I find that out. I have a feeling maybe not and its not an option for me in the bios but I'm not sure.

    Danny,

    It would be a setting in the BIOS to enable if available. Here are some instructions on how to under the Sample instructions for your PC section at the link below that may help to see how with your motherboard's BIOS.

    Running 64-bit guest OSes require Hardware Visualization which isn't available in your CPU

    Did you click on the All platforms link like in the screenshot under step 2 to download the extension pack? That doesn't look like the right one.
