I want to configure a Dev VM on my Windows Vista 64. But the installation shows the following error:
Attempting to load a 64-bit application, however this CPU is not compatible with 64-bit mode.

I have windows Vista 64 bits, but it seems like VirtualBox is defining the VM with a 32bits processor.

Sorry should say use Windows Vista (x64) as Version
I'm using VirtualBox 3.0.0.0 in german

Looking on the VirtualBox web site, it states this for running 64 bit guest OS's:

64-bit-VT or AMD-V capable CPU
Ensure AMD-V is enabled in BIOS
