I am going through the process of installing the openkimvm system for the boot camp tomorrow. I am following all of the steps under the virtualbox tab, https://pipeline.openkim.org/downloads. I am able to install virtualbox, however, I am running into some issues when setting up the vm.
I am only able to select ubuntu as a 32-bit vm, there is no option for 64-bit. (see attached picture).
I have gone through a maze of forums and I do not believe I will be able to run a 64-bit vm. I think the issue boils down to my cpu being too old and not supporting Intel VT-x.
My cpu: http://ark.intel.com/products/32427/Intel-Core2-Duo-Processor-T5550-2M-Cache-1_83-GHz-667-MHz-FSB
- When I complete vm setup process (with 32-bit Ubuntu) and start the machine, I get a black screen with a cursor. I wait awhile, but nothing happens. I am guessing this is a broken vm due to my inability to setup a 64-bit ubuntu installation?
Does anyone have experience with the issues I am having? Next steps? For reference, I am currently running Ubuntu 12.04 (64-bit), could I potentially bypass the whole vm system?
Thanks in advance for any help,
