Why does virtualbox only have 32-bit option, no 64-bit option on Windows 10

Today, while I am installing hadoop on my local system I found an issue that I am not able to install ubuntu 64bit OS while my host is 64bit windows 10 operating system.

After installing successful Oracle VM virtual box I am trying to install ubuntu 64bit, I can’t find that option.

This was annoying because I do have 64 bit OS and I could not use.

Let’s make some change in BIOS. Restart the system and press F10 for BIOS.

Go to system configuration tab. You will find visualization technology as disabled.

2

Turn it Enabled. Select virtualization technology row and press enter.

3

Press enter.

4

Press F10 for save the changes and exit.

Now I am able to select ubuntu 64 bit when I create virtualbox.
