Sat Dec 21, 2019 8:40 am

Does anyoune have the successful case of leveraging hypervisors on Raspbery Pi?
I would like to install the VirtualBox for linux and use virtual machines with Windows and other OS but
have some issues with Virtual Box installation.

VirtualBox and similar require machines with x86 CPU Architecture...

...the Raspberry Pi has ARM CPU Architecture.


Undertake a search for qemu or Pi386 in these forums or via Google Search !
Rather than negativity think outside the box !

Asus ChromeBox 3 Celeron is my other computer.

The Raspberry Pi does not have enough power to run serious visualisation software. The closest you will get is something like DosBox
