Is it an R710 server? If same or similar model then enable virtualization support in bios first

Its because VMware does not support 64bit OS.
if you need so then you can use Oracle Virtual Box

also try if this works.. as I had tested in oracle virtual box and all the OS run smoothly ..
in this case you need to enable virtualisation in BIOS.

Enabling Virtualization Technology in Dell Systems
Follow these steps to make Virtualization Techonology is enabled in BIOS.

Turn ON the System.
Press F2 key at startup BIOS Setup.
Press the right arrow key to Advanced tab, Select Virtualization and then press the Enter key.
Select Enabled and press the Enter key.
Press the F10 key and select Yes and press the Enter key to save changes and Reboot into Windows.

VMware Workstation 12 Pro supports Windows 7 Pro 64-bit just fine. I have it running here.

As mentioned by Nagendra Pratap Singh, make sure Virtualization is enabled in BIOS. I assume the server is a 64-bit machine. Only a 64-bit host machine with Virtualization enabled can run a 64-bit guest machine.
