weird reoccurring visual error when trying to install windows 10

Postby iewinveingfbnrkjf » 14. Aug 2022, 20:43

i don't know if anyone else has had this problem, but here i go anyways

i created a win 10 iso with the media creation tool, started it up with virtualbox, got a "hardware acceleration is not available on your system" error but booted into it anyways, chose windows 10 32-bit and after it finished loading files, i'm met with this

it might be because i don't have hardware acceleration, but i don't really know because random colors and random text isn't really helpful..

what should i do?

It would have to be a rather old PC or a lower-class laptop to really not have hardware virtualization (VT-x/AMD-V/SVM) but please look over I have a 64bit host, but can't install 64bit guests to double check.

After that, if your PC really doesn't have hardware virtualization then you will have to stick with 5.2 x or earlier Virtualbox, which will run without hardware virtualization. However, you'll only get 1-processor 32-bit VMs Windows 8.0 or earlier, probably some similar-vintage limitation for Linux.

If you can get hardware virtualization going, then 64-bit multi-processor VMs will work. Windows 10 likes 2 processors.
