Since my computer can't handle an actual disc for some reason, I tried to use VirtualBox to run Ubuntu on Windows. However, I can't use 64-bit ISOs, because VirtualBox is 32-bit. Is there a 32-bit ISO for Ubuntu?

    After enabling VT-x in BIOS a 32-bit host can run 64-bit guests. – Takkat Jun 2 '17 at 11:21
  • ^ What Takkat said, though the way you phrased it kinda makes it sound like you installed the 32-bit version of VirtualBox on a 64-bit host. – wjandrea Jun 14 '17 at 18:19

Yes, 32 bit images are still available for all Ubuntu and Ubuntu "flavour" releases. (Although not necessarily for other distros based on Ubuntu - for example KDE Neon is 64 bit only.)

They are a bit harder to find than I remember, though.

You can find torrent links at Alternative downloads | Ubuntu and regular downloads for the release you want at Ubuntu Releases.
