  • Question

  • I want to begin to develop KMDF driver but I have only one computer. My computer is 32-bit and has Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU   T5870  2.00GHz and OS Windows 7 Maximal. Which type of virtual machine can I install on my computer and use for debugging of KMDF driver during the process of KMDF driver  development? I'm in need of VM that is free of charge.

  • That is a 64-bit CPU, why are you running 32-bit Windows on it? In any event, I do not believe that CPU has SLAT (Second Level Address Translation) needed for Hyper-V, so you'll have to use VMware or VirtualBox.
