Help Centos 6.2 on LXF 156 disc

Postby Johnnie » Thu Mar 29, 2012 2:39 am

When I tried to set up Centos 6.2 on VM Box virtual machine which operates on a Windows 7 (32 bit) host and I also run Mint and Suse on the same VM Box, the error kept coming back that it was looking for a 64 bit processor. My laptop is an ACER Aspire 5736Z-4460 with an Intel Pentium T4500 and is capable of running 64 bit. I loaded 32 bit Win7 for compatibility with some of my older apps ( a possible mistake). I also tried to load a few of the OS on this DVD as Live OS. Screen stayed dark and hung up computer. I had to remove the battery to reboot. With all the comments about 64 bit vrs 32 bit did LXF forget to mention that this distro is 64 bit?

It is mentioned, twice, on the DVD cover. That explains why it won't run in a VM on 32 bit Windows, but not why you cannot boot it or other distros from the DVD natively.
