Ticket #2198 (closed defect: fixed)
Error in UG sec 1.2 -> fixed in 2.0.2
|Reported by:||TerryE||Owned by:|
UG Section 1.2 states "if you want to run 64-bit guest operating systems (a feature added with VirtualBox 2.0), since all 64-bit CPUs ship with hardware virtualization anyway." This is not correct. Some low end 64-bit chips (e.g. the Celeron E1200) and many older 64bit CPUs do not support VT-x. Also the motherboard BIOS must enable VT-x/AMD-V for it to be recognised.
As a result we're getting forum members who have read this and therefore assume that they can use 64bit guests because they have a 64bit chip.
