I'm using Vista 32 bit on my home box. I have Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 installed. I also have Windows Server 2008 on a DVD. Not Windows Server 2008 R2.
When I try installing Server 2008 on a virtual machine, I get a message telling me my CPU is not compatible with 64 bit mode and can't load a 64 bit application (can't remember the exact message.)
My CPU is an Intel quad core from 2008, which I believe can handle 64 bit apps. What's more, why would I get this message if I'm installing 32 bit Windows Server 2008?
