Intel Virtualization Mode and Recommend System requirements.

Hello SF stuff and members.

I like thins forums , because I can learn everything about computer here.
Today I have new questions about Virtualization.

I will start from first.

1. You can read my system spec. and answer. How much I can set max. using RAM on VM to use for example Windows 7 or any other OS who have higher system requirements ? I can say that when I asked about OC , I run Prime95 Test (Blend mode) and with 100% CPU , temp. was 60-65 degrees Celsius. I didnt OC it. Note : Guest OS is 32-bit. Im using VMware Player. In this question I want to say, I can set all max. but that can Overheat. I want max. settings without risk of overheating.

2. How to enable Intel Virtualization Mode ? Can that damge my system or BIOS ? Is it good ? Note : Host OS is 64-bit.

Thanks for reading and please answer soon.
Thanks in advance.
Trinty.

You can set the RAM as high as you would like in the VM, provided you have that much RAM on your actual system. Assume that Windows 7 is going to need about 1GB on it's own, so since you have 4GB of RAM total, you could safely give a VM 2 to 3GB of RAM and would be fine. You aren't going to overheat or damage your machine by providing it more RAM.

Intel Virtualization support is a feature that you enable in the BIOS. I've never heard of damaging a system by turning this feature on. Every machine I have ever used that supported this has had it enabled.

Thanks a lot pparks1. I only wanted to know this.
I love virtualization. That is one best thing for testing software, and others.

Don't sweat it. I don't really pay attention whatsoever to reputation points.
