Unfortunately your processor the Core 2 Duo E7200 does not supports Intel's Virtualization Technology (VT-x). You can check it here. As for the chipset of the motherboard that you have mentioned, the P43 Express Chipset does not supports Intel's Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O (VT-d) either. You can confirm it from here.

You can run a different OS in virtual machine. Better isolation (no host kernel is exposed in virtual machine), better security. Docker is not so easy to use if multiple processes run in a container. Disk capacity is not easy to expand when a Docker container is created.

I thing also netcat can be used for this see e.g. following link

What you describe is certainly possible.  Tandem Computers, Inc., now a division within Hewlett Packard, developed a redundant, fault-tolerant computer system called NonStop.  It was used in banks, stock exchanges, telephone switching centers, and other similar commercial transaction processing applications requiring maximum uptime and zero data loss.  ...

A virtual system cannot operate without a functioning host. It can, however, survive a failing host system. Take VMware Player as an example. The virtual systems are just folders that you can put any place. If you place these folders on an external device (preferably a SSD attached via eSata or USB3), then you can run these virtual systems on any host ...

If you don't have a VPN adapter (e.g. on a Windows PPTP client), it will not show up in the list as described by cpt_fink. This works for me, though: establish VPN connection in the host in virtual network editor, set VMnet8 (NAT) subnet to remote (VPN) subnet in NAT settings, set gateway IP to host's VPN IP in VM Settings, change network adapter to custom ...

According to my Windows Server class on TestOut LabSim, there are three types of virtual networks you can set up in Hyper-V. You might want an Internal network (you could put a file on the host hypervisor and then move it to the vm). Or, you could use a router to block access to the internet from the VM's mac or IP address. External. In an external ...

Simply don't specify a wireless adapter, and you are set! It's in the settings. Right-click the Virtual Computer in Hyper-V Manager, click Settings>Network Adapter>Virtual Switch, and set to Not Connected.

You can’t. You can, however, set a static IP configuration inside the VM, leaving out DNS servers and the gateway. That will make it unable to communicate with anything outside your local network.

Hyper-V is installed beneath the operating system. The host OS itself becomes a virtual machine. This change is transparent to users and applications because the host can continue to access the hardware directly. Hyper-V consists of a hypervisor layer upon which there is a parent partition and possibly any number of child partitions. The parent partition ...

As of today 2015, you can use VGA and PCI passthrough functions of VMs, so the guest OS can directly access your dedicated video card (you have to have 2 - one for Linux, one for Windows). This only works if you CPU and motherboard Virtualized I/O.

I do not have specific knowledge of Vagrant, but with virtualization in general your network type must be either bridged or NAT mode to reach your outside network. If you are assigning a static IP to the VM, your gateway address in the VM must match your host's gateway address (for bridged mode), or the NAT gateway address (if in NAT mode). It is possible ...

Extract from http://www.dmtf.org/sites/default/files/DMTF_OVF_2%200_FAQ__Final_1.pdf What are the new improvements/features of OVF 2.0 vs. OVF 1.0? OVF 1.0 has provided the industry with a standard packaging format for virtual machines – solving a critical business need for software vendors and cloud service providers. OVF 1.0 has been widely adopted to ...

I finally found the solution and it is somewhat strange. as suggested by Hennes in comment the option "Secure Virtual Machine Mode" has to be worked out. The real catch here was I had to disable that option. With secure virtual machine mode, this bios allows only one CPU to be allocated for virtual machine. I could allocate more CPU after disabling the ...

I'm running 8.1 Pro and this error came long with zero effective fixes. Finally I came across this: http://community.spiceworks.com/topic/379549-hyper-v-2012-vm-s-wont-initialize-no-other-error-msg?page=1#entry-4515524 The fix: From an elevated command prompt: net localgroup administrators LOCAL /delete net localgroup administrators SERVICE /delete ...

That processor specifically supports AMD-V according to its specs, but your output from Coreinfo above shows that it does not. Since you've already checked the virtualization options in your BIOS, try flashing your BIOS to a newer version. I checked ASUS's web site and it says that motherboard only supports the FX-8120 for BIOS revision 0801 or later. ...

Just a guess: you are not getting the MBR as I think you figured out already. The whole disk is too big. so.... 1) grab a USB drive with enough space get a working disk image; convert to qcow2; shrink it. 2) use gparted or parted to shrink the original. e2fsck and tune2fs *may* be helpful, also resize2fs.

if you can 'mount' your image file to a windows machine (XP preferrably), you can use Microsoft tools against it to see what the problem might be. the partition has to be 'active', it has to be an MBR (not GPT) formatted disk, and it has to have the correct boot sector. tools like diskpart and bootsect /nt52 /mbr have been useful for me in the past. I'm ...
