Virtualization on HP2000 laptop

HP Recommended
HP2000
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi HP

I am trying a proof of concept idea and I have an older laptop, HP2000 from 2013, I am trying to use VirtualBox on my Hp2000 and all I get are 32bit options, according to systeminfo

Hyper-V requirements:  VM Monitor mode extensions: NO

                                             Virtualization enabled in Firmware: No

                                             Second Level Address Translation: NO

                                            Data execution Prevention: YES

 

How do I get VirtualBox to accept 64bit operating systems? Not sure what to do, watched a ton of youtube video and tried a bunch of things...

 

I set in the bios the legacy support to: ENABLE, if I switch to DISABLE, it does not find the installed hard drive.. Could this be the issue???

Windows 10 was released to the public in 2015.

 

Is your computer running a 64-bit operating system? Windows 7, or upgraded to Windows 10 after 2015?

Can you boot into BIOS Setup, and enable virtualization? Given the vintage of the computer, it might not even be an option.

There is a 32-bit version of Windows 10. Is that the OS that you are trying to install?

 

Note that Windows 10 64-bit requires a minimum of 2GB of RAM. In your case, how much "real" RAM does your hardware have?  Hopefully, you have at least 4 GB (2 GB for the "real" OS, and another 2GB for the virtual OS to use).

 

If not HyperV, maybe try the Oracle VM hypervisor ?

No.
