I downloaded and installed VirtualBox 4.3.26 for Windows hosts and Ubuntu 14.04.1 64-bit, and my host operating system is Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit. When I try to create a new virtual machine, I only have the option of installation-> Ubuntu (32bit) system.
I found a lot of similar articles with my problem and people say that I must go to bios and change Virtualization option to enabled. The thing is that I don't have such an option in my bios.
I found on this page, the following information: "our PC processor and motherboard should support this feature, if they don’t, you can’t do anything to get this feature because it’s a built-in hardware feature. "
My processor is Pentium(R) Dual-Core CPU T4500. Is there any option to install Ubuntu 14.04.1 64-bit on my Oracle VBM?
When I installed Ubuntu 14.04.1 32-bit on VBM it worked veeeerrrrryyyyy slowly (I gave 1GB RAM for Ubuntu). I thought that if I find an answer how to install Ubuntu 14.04.1 64-bit, it would work much faster. When I installed Ubuntu 14.04.1 32-bit on VBM I enabled 3D acceleration as someone wrote here: https://askubuntu.com/questions/453106/ubuntu-14-04-very-slow-ui-in-oracle-virtualbox. It didn't help. I only want to install Ubuntu (doesn't matter if it would be 32bit or 64bit) on my VBM and I want it to run fast and work normally.
