    So are you saying I would be able to use x32 but only x32? So x32 ubuntu and windows xp as well as windows 98 should work fine then. (These were the main ones I wanted to use virtually) But only on version 12 of vmware player? If so that would be good news. In the meantime, here is some screenshots of what I am seeing. I can upload bios pics as well in case that is useful.

    Edit: just tried vmware 12 player and now I get this on my windows 98 vm when trying to launch it:

    Hi there


    I think you have to run the 32 bit version only --could be that you need to run a 32 bit HOST windows too -- I see the VT feature is OFF which kills any sort of 64 bit VMWare activity.

    Incidentally - although you still need VT enabled to do this --it's possible to run 64 bit guests on a 32 bit Host (although HOST must itself support 64 bit cpu instructions) --of course if you do this HOST + GUEST combined won't be able to use more than 4GB RAM however much is in the system.

    You colud look for a firmware update for your BIOS if you can't set the VT feature on.

    When it comes though to AMD processors I have to confess my ignorance here as I tend only to bother with INTEL --might be more expensive but IMO a lot less hassle.

    Thanks. As I said bios is already up to date. Just doesn't have the option. I guess I am out of luck. Thanks anyways. Amd is usually great with virtualization. Never had any problems. I just think this model for whatever reason is just overly simple with the bios.

    You could, if it is just for experimentation, try Version 6.00 of Virtualbox, as it will support running Virtual Machines using software virtualization.

    from the site:
    "Please also use version 6.0 if you need to run VMs with software virtualization, as this has been discontinued in 6.1. Version 6.0 will remain supported until July 2020."

    I just used Version VBox 5.2.36 (the last VBox version supported by the particular Netbook) to temporarily try out old VBox Windows 98 and Windows XP Virtual Machines on an Intel Atom Netbook with just 2GB RAM and 250GB SSD. They did run slow (note: Guest Additions are no longer supported for Win98), but considering the system spec (same Virtualization capabilities as your system except no 'Second Level Address Translations') it was not surprising, and your system spec's overall are much better.
