in your bios the will be intel-virtual setting or amd-v and its properly turned off turn it on and it might work

I would use vmware esxi free on a old 64bit server as you can get them cheap I could a 2*amd double core 64bit server for £70 off ebay

Virtual PC does not support 64 bit guest operating systems.  If you need a 64 bit guest, you'll have to use a different virtualization product.  VMWare workstation for example (VMWare Server is not licensed for use on a workstation).
