VirtualBox Only Showing 32-bit & NO 64-bit Versions - Simple Fix
Only see 32-bit and no 64-bit versions of operating systems as options while creating a new virtual machine in Oracle's VM VirtualBox?
Even when your host operating system is 64-bit?
Then you are on the right page, because this tutorial will show you in a few simple steps how to solve this problem.
I opened VirtualBox, clicked on 'NEW', entered a name for the virtual machine, choose the type of operating system, but when I wanted to choose a version, I only saw 32-bit versions and NO 64-bit versions as a option.
Fortunately I found a simple solution online and I will share this solution with you.
Note! Your host operating system (OS installed on your PC) must be 64-bit.
I was using a 64-bit version of Windows 10 Pro while creating this tutorial.
