seen this a number of times. you'll find on the vm support forums that 64 bit vms are only currently support with certain 64 bit amd chipsets. they also provide a utility on the vm support site that you can download and run on an system you want to put a 64 bit vm session on. it will tell you right off the bat if its compatible or not. sorry you're out of luck with the core 2 duo. 32bit only currently

1.  Make sure that Intel Virtualization is enabled in the BIOS, this will normally do the trick

There is a setting in the BIOS that you have to enable its called VT, make sure that is enabled, and that should give you 64bit support for your Operating systems.
