    Windows 10, Virtualbox and Insider 16232 iso.


    Good day everyone,itís time for simple minded question of the day. Some time back I installed Ubuntu 16.04 on my laptop, then installed Virtualbox. I then downloaded Windows 10 Creators Update iso, and set it up in Virtualbox. I do not know why, but when I ran it, it booted to setup/install. I shut down Virtualbox, started it again and ran Windows again. Same thing happened again. Am I doing something wrong?

    Now I am back on Windows 10, downloaded Virtualbox and downloaded Insider 16232 iso. Will I run into the same problem.

    Well I ran into my first problem. Opened Virtualbox and it only list 32 bit versions. My Windows is 64 bit, what gives. I googled and one option was to reboot, that did not work. My version of Windows is Creators Update Home.

    Don't know "what gives" but 32-bit versions of Windows can run on 64-bit hardware. There's 2 Folders on 64-bit Windows, C:\Program Files and C:\Program Files (x86), the latter is for installing 32-bit programs. Both depend upon the version being installed. A 32-bit version of Windows will have only the C:\Program Files Folder and can install only 32-bit programs on it.
