64bit VirtualBox guest
 
I installed 64bit Debian as host. but virtualbox still refuses to use 64bit guest. :/
is my CPU (Celeron 420) 'incompatible'?

Yes, it is. To use a 64bit guest in virtualbox or vmware, your CPU has to have hardware support for virtualization.

You could use qemu.

But the performance will be very poor and insufficient to run and work with Gnome or KDE

I'd try vmplayer. Dunno why Virtualbox is complaining. Virtualbox has been around a long time, before processors had vm support.

It won't work in vmplayer either. Neither vmware player or virtualbox support 64-bit guests on processors that don't have hardware VM support.

oh, ok. so I'm better off with 32bit guest?

I was hoping to get some more speed by running 64bit apps on guest OS (XP 64bit)

64-bit doesn't mean faster for most applications.
