I have a Dell Inspiron 1440 laptop and it has no virtualization support, i want to install Windows Server 2008 on it using Virtual Box, i know that we can install Mac OS on not Virtualization supported system using some patch. I also haired that Virtual box don't needs hardware virtualization, it will do that using software virtualization. how can i achieve that, any guidance would be very nice. Thanks

I haven't tried this myself but if you are trying to install the 64-bit version, I doubt you will be able to do what you are wanting. –  jmreicha Apr 6 '12 at 16:26
