This question already has an answer here:
I'm on windows 7 64 bit, Intel Core i7 3612QM, NVIDIA GeForce GT640M 2GB, 8GB RAM, 240GB SSD and 500GB HDD.
I want to delete and get rid of windows 7 partition and install Ubuntu 13.10 on my 240GB SSD.
I tried installing Ubuntu 13.10 64 bit on virtualbox but I get this error:
This Kernel requires an x86-64 CPU, but only detected an i686 CPU. Unable to boot - please use a kernel appropriate for your CPU.
I have checked my CPU details here: Intel Core i7 3612QM
If you scroll a bit to that site, you can see there: 64 Bit - 64 Bit support
I want to install Ubuntu 64 bit, but is my computer compatible with it?
