[SOLVED]Anyone managed to get a WIN10 machine on a AWS instance ?

Postby smalldragoon » 18. Mar 2020, 14:33

HI,
I have an AWS instance with an Ubuntu 18.04 installed.
I build a machine using an ISO in 64bits , specifying of course the os type as Windows10_64.
But I still get the error saying "This 64-bit application couldn't load because your PC doesn't have a 64-bit processor ...."
does anyone managed to get a win10 wokring in AWS ? ( even a 32 is ok )
Thanks !

Please post a VM log file. With the VM fully shut down, right click and "Show Log" in the GUI, save "VBox.log" (no other file) to a zip, and attach the zip here.

Anyway that sounds to me like a nested VM scenario, and it probably isn't going to work since I don't believe AWS guarantee that your host VM will not be moved to a different CPU, so the Win10 guest would be deactivated anyway. In any case nested VMs itself is a troublesome problem even when we can at least fix the host hardware.

Hi Mpack
Thanks a lot for your answer
I don't need wonderfull peformances for it, it is just to run an mmc to be connected locally. That's why even a windows8 would be ok.
I'm running headless VM, I enabled full logging, here are the logs attached
Thanks !

Um. I didn't say anything about performance, I said I didn't think it would work at all. The log confirms it.

00:00:00.459036 HM: HMR3Init: Falling back to raw-mode: VT-x is not available

No VT-x/AMD-v, so no 64bit VMs. FAQ: I have a 64bit host, but can't install 64bit guests.

ah missed this point ( read the doc yes, but did not see in the log this particular point )
I understand that it is requirement of VirtualBox 6.1.0
would a previous version would work ?

64-bit VMs have always required VT-x. The only change in 6.1.0 is that 32-bit VMs now require it too.

Given the lack of VT-x and lack of resources (RAM, CPU cores), I wouldn't recommend anything higher than Windows 7 32bit, 1024MB RAM, 2 cores.

And there's no need to try an earlier version, because you're already using the Ubuntu fork of 5.2.24 (which FYI means we can't really support you on the official VirtualBox forums).
