    I want to install a 64 bit version of Operating System on Window 7 64 bit Laptop. I tried it by using VPC2007, VMWare and VirualBox. But it was failure and saying 64 bit can not be installed on a 32 bit processor. My laptop have a processor Intel Core2Duo P7350.
    I installed and run the Intel Processor Utility, and the result is
    Intel Virtulization Technology — No
    Intel Hyper-Treading Technology–No
    Intel 64bit Architecture–Yes
    My operating system is Windows7 Ultimate N 64bit.
    Please Help me for this…..
    I want to install Windows Server 2008r2 virtually on my laptop..
    Thanks in advance….

    are you running Windows 7 x64 as the host?

    Also – you don’t have VT technology, I don’t think it’s going to work anyway

    this is for ESX3.5, but for Vmware products, I’d say the same applies

    Does not installing VMWare on a 64bit version of Windows 7 allow you to install 64bit Guest software?
