    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.

    ... then enable Hyper-V in Windows features:

    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.
