HDP on Windows – Installation Forum

Installing HDP on 32 bit Windows 7

  • #25058

    I’m keen on learning Hadoop and related technologies and I have Windows 7 32 bit OS.
    Is it possible to install HSP sandbox using a VMware image on my PC.
    Please advice.

    Hi, it depends on processor of your machine. You’ll need to make sure your processor has hardware virtualization and that it is enabled in the BIOS. If you have intel processor here you can check whether it supports virtualization, or download VmWare compability checker.
