    My first thought would be that somehow you grabbed and installed the 32 bit version instead?

    Other than that, no ideas :/

    Have you downloaded the file from a trusted location?
    The beta is a bit outdated. Get the Release Preview: Download Windows 8 Release Preview

    One more thing: how big it your ISO file?
    -2.5 GB => 32bit OS
    -3.3 GB => 64bit OS

    And we know if it's the real 64bit deal.
