    I've installed it on my old core 2 laptop - dual boot with Win7 on the primary HD - separate partitions. Haven't tried it with vmware but I do recall a post somewhere about the memory allocation.

    Are you trying to install 32 or 64 bit? Try 32 bit.

    The problem is that "core 2 duo" is only a family name and does not refer to a specific processor. There are quite a few processors in that family with quite different capabilities. It would help if you could provide the full name.

    Processor-T5500-1.6GHz. I am using 32 bit. Here is a screen shot of a new error that arose, although system Support for Core2duo-capture.jpgrequirements on Microsofts website are quite low.

    As LMiller7 correctly states, there are several types of Core 2 Duo. Mine is the P8400 @2.26GHz Penryn 45nm. Running Win10 x64. 6GB ram.

    Well that surely looks like a 64 bit error message.

    Are you positive you are trying to install 32 bit ?

    Although, that is a 64 bit capable cpu.

    ARK | Intel® Core?2 Duo Processor T5500 (2M Cache, 1.66 GHz, 667 MHz FSB)

    I would just make a partition and install Windows TP there and see if the problem still occurs.

    Maybe one of these many videos will help.

    Yeah, i downloaded the x86 iso. But my Pc is from 2007. So 64 bit software is dead slow on it. Will try to work it out.

    It should work. I have a similar CPU in an old notebook and it installed fine. I guess it´s not a processor thing !

    I would check your bios to make sure there are no settings that disable PAE. This processor doesn't have any virtualization technology, and i'm wondering if Windows 10 might require some level of virtualization to work.
