Virtual PC 2007 and SBS 2008 R2 Premium

I have a PC with 8gb ram and Windows 7 Pro 64 bit installed. I installed Virtual PC 2007 64 bit on this PC I then created two virtual systems, one is for SBS 2008 R2 Premium and the other for Win7 64 bit Pro. Each time I attempt to install SBS i get a failure that states that I don't have a CPU that supports 64 bit programs.
I have an INTEL motherboard with Intel Quad 2.66 CPU. The motherboard is set to work with Virtual systems. Can anyone point me to some info to resolve this issue?

Windows 7 does not support 64bit Virtual Machines with the built in virtualisation product.

You will need to download VMWare Server from here: http://www.vmware.com/products/server/

This will allow you to create 64bit Virtual Machines.

didn't I say that?

To go furher, only Hyper-V Server and the Hyper-V role support 64bit Virtual Machines.

Kind of ... I'm not after the points, so relax.  I simply thought your answer needed some clarification.

I was just pointing out that Virtual PC - be it the "built in virtualisation product" OR the stand-alone app (for any Windows OS) - does not support x64 guests.
