    Is the host 32 or 64 bit?

    Depending on what exactly you're trying to do, you might need to edit a setting in your BIOS to enable hardware virtualisation, in order to run 64-bit guests on the host machine. This is explained in this VirtualBox help page: I have a 64bit host, but can't install 64bit guests.
