Version Type for VPS

Post by jules54 » 2016/05/12 18:40:50

My local box is a 32-bit windows machine. The server I want to emulate is a 64-bit Centos5.11 server. Can I install the 64-bit version in my Virtual Box?

I'd say no, but this is a Windows question.

I believe VirtualBox can run 64 bit guests on a 32 bit host but only if you have VT-x both enabled and present on the processor and in the BIOS. But as Gerald says, this is not really a question for us though I would recommend asking the VirtualBox guys the question if you want an accurate answer.
CentOS 5 died in March 2017 - migrate NOW!
CentOS 6 goes EOL sooner rather than later, get upgrading!
