Windows 7: VirtualBox 2.1

Umm, Securable does *not* check if you have the VTextensions *enabled/disabled* on boot in the BIOS - it only checks if the CPU supports it - which Ted's CPU already supports it.

Nice try, but you misunderstood what I am looking for....

Hello jg!

Yes I knew it was in the BIOS, but it is not enabled yet. I'm going to take my time learning this as it's something I've been wanting to get started with for a while.

@DA, thanks for starting this thread and for the link. I've hit your rep....

Gonna give that a shot now.

Works well. I am starting over from scratch on my Virtual Machines, but it verified to me that the 6956 build I had was toast from the get go - loading it straight off the ISO made no difference, it still gives me the install.wim error.

Sure - take 2 aspirin and soak your left pinkie in hot water for a day.

(We can't exactly help without knowing what the problem is - and please don't post in multiple topics.)

My apologies - on re-reading that I sound like too much of a jerk - I wasn't trying to be, I was actually *literally* falling out of my chair when I wrote it - it was an admittedly heavy-handed attempt at humor, and I apologize Asmokki - but the fact that we have no details is still a problem....
