Can't Launch VM with 2GB or More

Hey gang, I’m having trouble with my Openstack Lab. I’ll preface by saying I’m brand new to all this, I’ve been a windows admin for the last 10 years and am trying to learn something new. I’ve been following the install guide at docs . openstack for the kilo release

My issue is when I launch an instance I get the error

Error: No valid host was found. There are not enough hosts available

But when I dig deeper I find this in my /var/log/nova-compute.log.

libvirtError: internal error: process exited while connecting to monitor: qemu: at most 2047 MB RAM can be simulated

As a test I launched an instance using m1.tiny, only using 512MB ram and it works fine. So I believe my problem is my hypervisor. Thinking I should be using KVM not QEMU, however I have configured for KVM.

/etc/nova/nova-compute.conf

compute_driver=libvirt.LibvirtDriver

[libvirt] virt_type = kvm

KVM seems to be loaded..

lsmod | grep kvm

kvm_intel 159744 0 kvm

471040 1 kvm_intel irqbypass

16384 1 kvm

My machine(s) are all: uname -a

Linux compute 4.4.0-42-generic 62~14.04.1-Ubuntu SMP Fri Oct 7 23:16:06 UTC 2016 i686 i686 i686 GNU/Linux

I”ve torn down my 3 machines and rebuilt them 3 times now. At a bit of a loss where to go from here! My machine has tons of RAM available, 24GB free.

Could this be because i have the i686/32bit OS and not a 64?
