    Thanks seems like the 10 x86 might not be worth messing with anyway
    Display is seriously too small judging from the install screen in vm it's pitifully small just over half a 1600 wide screen :/

    I'll just wait and see about adding a dual ssd and install the 10 64 bit version as dual boot later
    Thanks for the help guys

    If you can spare 100GB on your HDD, cut a partition and custom install WTP to that location; that'll be more than enough room to play with the Preview.

    We have dueling threads going on here.
    @Edwin, he is trying to avoid a previous experience with a dual boot, so trying the VM route.

    Mike Your window size question was answered over on EF.

    Yea I'm not happy with the 32 bit 10TP deal,
    I'm going to tear my machine a part and take some pictures and try and figure out what type of cables to get for a dual ssd hookup
    Then if successful (cross fingers) I'll install win-8/ 8.1 on the second ssd and use hyper-v or at last result VMware or simply install win-10TP 64 bit as a dual boot on the separate ssd might make the pain a little less destructive to the 7 ssd ??????

    Anyway I have some Black Friday deals to take care of,
    1-ram upgrade to 8 gigs
    2-new ssd with dual bracket and appropriate cables
    3 Possibly a third ssd for my laptop Optional depending on prices :/
    December should be FunTime

    Alright then, carry on Mike.

    @Edwin, I retract my previous explanation.

    What about 'Advanced BIOS Features'?
    Thanks for the help,
    Unless you can recognize where it might be hiding I don't see it :/

    On my Acer HTPC with AMD CPU, the virtualization is under Advanced Tab >>> Advanced Chipset Configuration >>> AMD-V

    Have a look if this is any help. It seems to be an Acer thing (Vt option turned off).
