Fedora Core4 issues...


Recently I wanted to install Fedora Core 4, I'm installing it on Vmware. I downloaded the x86_64 version of FC4, burned the iso to a cd but when I load Vmware and try to boot of the disc It gives me this weird message "Your CPU does not support long mode. Use a 32bit distribution", now I would understand this if my cpu was other then AMD64 3000+. I have the AMD64 3000+, I was told already that it was a problem probally with my BIOS setting within Vmware of course, to make sure my CPU is noticed correctly. When I checked out the BIOS settings there were no options about the CPU. Any thoughts???

Your VMWare installation is probably on a Windows 32bit OS. If that is the case then regardless your CPU type it won't allow you install the 64bit OS.

I got the same message, "Your CPU does not support long mode. Use a 32 bit distribution". I just tried to boot the first cd and install it like any other distribution I tried before, but i got this message. What does it mean? Can i install Fedora Core 4 on my computer? I have an AMD Athlon 2600+ CPU. Thank you.

Read MeGaMASTER's post?

From that the obvious solution is to download the 32 bit version of Fedora Core and install that
