Install CentOS 4.7-x86_64 problem

Postby aysan » 2008/10/30 10:08:24

Hi,

I have Windows Server 2003 Standart x64 edition on Intel Xeon 5140 CPU.
I installed Microsoft Virtual PC (64bit).
When I try to install CentOS 4.7-x86_64 on my Virtual PC, I get the following error:

Your CPU does not support long mode. Use a 32bit distribution.

I will be pleased if you could help me on this issue.
Thanks.

I'm not familiar with Microsoft Virtual PC, so I have to ask. Does it (64-bit version) support 64-bit guests [on your hardware] ?

Hi again,
Sorry for my late answer. I checked it and realized that Virtual PC 2007 does not support 64bit guest OSs.
So, I've installed VMware Workstation. It works fine now.
Thanks.
