    At boot, you need to engage the appropriate key to enter your bios menu and navigate to the area that may or may not have a setting, similar to the one in the screenshot, to enable virtualization.

    Settings on your machine will be different than mine but these are just examples.
    Hope this helps.

    Nothing there either and I looked at all section and nothing pointed to anything related to hyper-v or virtualizations

    I did install x86 10TP x86 it seems okay but I have no idea if I'm supposed to create a new partition to install 10 on via the custom install options or use the default install
    8 tutorial only says install as you normally would via a clean install ?
    win-10 is downloaded to my videos folder on C on win-7 :/
    vmplayer is installed in C programs x86 folder
    Pretty lost now

    Choice is yours, it's easier on a VM but more stable and real as a dual boot.

    EDIT: You got lots of disk space? (Maybe post a shot of disk management)

    Yes space is not a large issue but win-10 messes with the system reserved partition and it's pain to clean up after because 10 always wants to change boot defaults and or default os from win-7 on every update/ new build...

    VMware I was under the false impression was supposed to manage all of this booting stuff via simply opening VMware and install win-10 in a single folder where the iso existed
    Allowing that folder to be 60gigs via the tutorials size recommend ?

    But yes even with VMware it seems like nothing but a dual boot but only using a 32 version of win-10 :/
    This kind of bites ?

    I think you are getting confused Mike, VM's are nothing like a dual boot.

    Everything, the partition you create and the entire OS are all done within the VMware program and are just a folder inside your current OS.
