    Hello everyone.

    I am trying to make my mind up about installing XP Pro 64 bit on my new AMD Phenon 3Core, so, I am using MVM2007 and Sun xVM VirtualBox to try it.

    I have XP Pro 32 bit running as my OS.

    When I power my VM I get this error message...

    Attempting to load an x64 operating system, however this CPU is not compatible with x64 mode. Please install a 32-bit X86 operating system.
    Setup cannot continue. Press any key to exit.

    What is going on here???

    Any help well appreciated.

    Are you saying you're trying to install a 64-bit OS into a virtual environment hosted on a 32-bit OS? If so, it won't work.
