Distribution: Slackware (mainly) and then a lot of others...
Look at the output of '/proc/cpuinfo'. This will tell you what kind of cpu you have. If you have any doubts post the output here. Someone will be there to help you.
BTW the link that you posted goes to Error 404.
The link you supplied is broken so I cannot see if it supports VT or not. You need Intel VT support on your CPU else you cannot run 64bit OSes in a VM even if your CPU is 64bit. If it has VT support then you may need to enable VT support in your BIOS.
Distribution: Debian Sid AMD64, Raspbian Wheezy, Slackware Current AMD64, various VMs
If you're running Vista 32 bit then it may be you can't run 64 bit clients.
Last time I read VirtualBox's documentation I was given the impression that 64 bit guests in 32 bit hosts is not supported, but people have told me this is wrong.
To run 64 bit clients on a 32 bit host you need to have hardware virtualization support, which your CPU does have. You also have to tell the VM that it will be running a 64 bit guest (in Virtualbox this is done with setting the guest OS to "Linux 2.6 (64 bit)" or "distribution name (64 bit)").
To install any 64bit distro as a VM you will have to have VT option enabled in your BIOS else it will not install or run. If it was a normal install (not VM) directly to your hard drive then the VT option is irrelevant to your choice of 32/64bit.
The Debian ISO your referred to is a multi-architecture version and supports installing Debian as a 32 or 64bit install. You will be given that choice when you start the installation.
Ahh... FINE THREAD FINAL SOLUTION
So i get this error not because i dont have 64bit but just in VM install cause i need activating the VT option from the Bios.
The BIOS VT option is only for VM Ware Instalation, if you clear instal its irelative as you sed nixblog at post #9. thank you very much
I ve downloaded that debian iso with both i386-amd64 in it, so nice, I ll be given the choice in installation. as you Its fine i think.
I hate half-way abandoned threads. Or cause starter managed to find way out.
