WIndows 7 Cannot be installed in Virtual Box

I have tried to install WIndows 7 64 bits Enterprise ISO on VirtualBox, but it keeps asking for drivers.
I have tried to install it in VMware Workstation, and it installed  without any problem.

I still want to install in VirtualBox, if I can get some help from EE Windows Gurus.

Thanks

If you select Windows 7 system profile default disk is SATA which is perfectly supported by Windows 7.
For 64bit guest system you must have virtualisation extension enabled for your processor.
At what point do you get asked for drivers? Do you have a screenshot?

When I created a VM in VirtualBox,I chose "Don't add a virtual hard drive" that was the problem.
Now that I selected that option, the select HDD and proceeded with the wizard...then in Settings/Storage under controller ID, I selected the location of the ISO file. it looks like now it is installing...

Thanks for your help Guys !!
