SAS University Edition on Oracle VirtualBox - not getting option Red Hat(64-bit)

Windows 7 32-bit processor 4Gb Ram.

 

I have installed VirtualBox-5.0.20-106931, and using import appliance option completed "unvbasicvapp__9411005__ova__en__sp0__1.ova" import. While import under Appliance setting "Guest OS type : Red Hat (64 - bit)", and import completed successfully.

 

Now select select General under Settings and edit Share Folders option and share folders, on clicking OK Operating System option changes to Ubuntu (32-bit).

When I edit Operating System field to update it with Red Hat (64 - bit), it does not show Red Hat (64 - bit) option in the combobox.

Need help to get "Red Hat (64 - bit) " option in the combo so I can get rid of "This kernel requires an x86-64 CPU, but only detected an i686 CPU."

Do you see any 64 bit guests as options when making new virtual machines? Unfortunately, you cannot run a 64 bit guest OS on a 32 bit hardware system - are you sure your processor is actually 32 bit, or you just have a 32-bit version of windows? If it's the former, there is nothing you can do. If it's the latter, you can explicitly enable a feature to handle the scaling - but there is a performance penalty.

Thanks for prompt reply.

 

I had installed oracle VM Virtual box on 32 bit hardware system.

 

Based on you suggestion I have installed oracle VM Virtualbox on the hardware with 64 bit and OS Windows 8.1 64 bit.

 

I have completed  SAS University Edition import with guest operating system version "Red Hat (64-bit)" as default selection while making new virtual machine.

 

When I  updated an option "Share Folders" under "Setting", guest version changes to "Unbuntu (32-bit)", and I did not see 64 bit guests as an option any more.

 

I need help so that I can see 64 bit guests as options under "Setting > General > Basic > Version".

Right now I can see all version of Linux 32 bit only. 

 

For more detail please open attached file.

Problem is fixed.

64 bit Machine on which I have deployed Oracle Virtual box, also have Hyper-v running on it.

I have stopped hyper-V and redeployed Oracle virtual box.

I can see welcome message of SAS University Edition.

Thanks and cheers!!!!!
