Virtual machine for a 32-bit processor

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I know that I would probably only be able to run a 32-bit OS, but I still would like to do it if it's possible. I tried Virtualbox, but it requires a 64-bit processor. Are there any VM programs that work on a 32-bit processor (it's an Intel Atom Z2760 in an HP Elitepad 900 G1)? Thanks!

even if you could, i wouldnt recommend it. 32bit makes everything slower as your cpu gets half bandwidth. also, if your cpu doesnt support 64bit, i would highly reccomend upgrading if you can afford it. 

 

if you have windows, try hyper-v or whatever its called.

I know it would run like crap, it's really just for fun.

 

Hyper-v requires a 64-bit CPU and double the RAM I have (it requires 4GB, I only have 2GB).

You won't have a good time, but it might be fun.

 

Good luck, space pupper.
