Can I run Whonix as regular (host) OS? Without virtualization

#1

Can I use Whonix as I use any primary OS (e.g. Windows), not virtually runned? My CPU is 64-bit but doesn’t support virtualization, so VirtualBox, Hyper-V and etc. can’t provide installing of 64-bit guest OS’es. Only way is install Whonix as regular OS (how?) or inside Qubes (I not sure it will work).

#2

Simple answer: no.

You need virtualization capacities to run the VMs.

https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Dev/Build_Documentation/Physical_Isolation perhaps.

Qubes itself uses virtualization (Xen).

#4

Yes, “to run the VMs”. But my question is about installing directly on physical machine, using Whonix as bootable OS

Thank you for that reference
