Life without Windows or OS X

GNU/Linux is quite possibly the most important free software achievement since the original Space War, or, more recently, Emacs. It has developed into an operating system for business, education, and personal productivity. GNU/Linux is no longer only for UNIX wizards who sit for hours in front of a glowing console. Are you thinking about switching to Linux and want to learn how to use it? Have you been using GNU/Linux for some time and want to learn even more? This is the place for you.

Why does virtual box only have 32-bit option and no 64-bit option?

If  Virtual Box is only showing 32 bit versions in the Version list

Make sure: Your Host OS is 64-bits.

Make sure: Intel Virtualization Technology and VT-d are both enabled in the BIOS.

The Hyper-V platform is disabled in your Windows Feature list.

Note: All PC’s have different types of BIOS versions

Step 1. Close all windows and restart your computer.
Step 2. When the screen goes black, press f12. (Many computer and laptops have different keys like esc, f2 or f10)
Step 3. Go to configuration tab and select Intel Virtual Technology. (if your PC is set to their default settings, then it’s turned off or disabled by default.)
Step 4. Enable the Intel Virtual Technology and press f10 to save your settings and restart your PC.
