Simulater without VMware. ( laptops which did not support VT )

Hi,

 

Can we able to install Netapp simulator 7 mode on window laptop? My laptop is not supportting virtualization technology ( so i am not able to install VMware).

If we can have option to install simulator on windows OS directly, please let know the version and link to download ontap.

 

Thanks,

Jay.

Hi there!

 

Unfortunately not - seems a bit unusual though that your laptop doesn't support it. Check Intel's CPU ID program - you might need to enable vt-d / vt-x in the BIOS first - https://www.intel.com.au/content/www/au/en/support/articles/000005486/processors.html

 

Otherwise, maybe get a cheap older desktop (ideally with 16GB of RAM) to run it on. ONTAP is an operating system, not a program.

 

Hope this helps!

Hi Alex,

Thanks for the update. As adviced, i have checked my laptop with that link..(T4400) VT - not supported.

My laptop: DELL Inspiron 1545

Processor : Pentium(R) Dual-Core CPU T4400 @2.20GHz, 2200Mhz.

..But my friend have the laptop ( Lenovo T740).. with linux OS and KVM ( windows 7 ) in it. Can I able to install simulator
on Windows KVM ? If yes, please get me the link of 7 mode.

 

Thanks

Jay
