VirtualBOX - cannot run 64-bit system

#1 Post by NicoMarcin » Sun Jul 02, 2017 2:53 pm

Hi! On my X201 with i5 560M with 4GB of RAM and Windows 7 Home onboard I can't run 64-bit linux! I have VT-d and Virtualization mode enabled in my BIOS. I can't turn of Hyper-V in "add and remove features of Windows". Reinstall of VBox doesn't help at all. What can I do? Help me please! :D

VTx and VTd are two completely different things. It simply wont work.

Thinkpad4by3's Law of the Universe.

The efficiency of two screens equally sized with equal numbers if pixels are equal. The time spent by a 4:3 user complaining about 16:9 is proportional to the inefficiency working with a 16:9 display, therefore the amount of useful work extracted is equal.

So I have Vt-d turned on only, and virtualization - it still doesn't work!

you need VTx only to run 64 bit guest OS,
VTd has no practical uses for your laptop except for allowing access to PCIe devices.
