I have the latest version of pclos, fully updated. I installed vbox (4.1.18) from the repo, and installed win 7. It worked.....
Then I decided I'd clean out the drive, reformat etc. Now when I tr to install win7, I get "windows files loading" followed by "error" the error being "cannot install a 64 bit syste on this processor."
So what have I done differently?
m/b is Gigabyte GA-H61M-S2PV
with Intel G620 LGA1155 running at 2.6G,
8G of memory (Which shows up as half that in the memory setting options for vbox panel, so I choose just under 2G, and select "1 processor", not that that seems to change the end result.)
I have tried various routes of installation, ie choice of task-vbox, or the other selections in the repo, but all roads lead to the same place.
What have I got wrong anyone?
