I'm trying to find a way to use a 64-bit Linux virtual machine (I'd like to use Ubuntu 16.10-amd64 ISO from Ubuntu official website) through Oracle VirtualBox on my laptop. My laptop has Windows 8 32-bit installed, but my CPU is x64 based, so as far as I know I could replace 32-bit OS with a 64-bit OS, and there shouldn't be any issue with a 64-bit Linux virtual machine. Assuming that I can't change from a 32-bit OS to 64-bit OS, is there a way to run a 64-bit Linux virtual machine guest on a 32-bit OS host?
I've tried the steps from Run 64bit OS in Virtual Box from 32bit Ubuntu, but while installing I get this error:
kernel panic not syncing fatal exception in interrupt
