Why can I install ESXi 4.0 but not use a Guest 64 Bit OS?

Im trying to add a 64 Bit OS to a ESXi 4.0 installation on my IBM X Series Server.

It says that "The Destination does not support 64 Bit Operating Systems", but i thought your processor had to be compliant to install ESXi 4.0 anyway?

I have a CORE 2 DUO 2.5 GHz installed on the server.

Can anyone help?

Oh man..... just realised my processor is from the E7000 family...... which doesnt support VT!

What a joke!  

32-Bit it will have to be!

Thanks for your help :)
