Looking at your .docx file above, looks more like you're running a 64 bit VM, then trying to install a 32 bit Distro image, as the image is listed as a 32 bit CentOS version.

Likely fix will be to use a 64 bit CentOS image, rather than 32 bit image.

Referring to your attached slide shows...

Red Hat (32 Bit)

This suggest somehow you've ended up with a 32 bit image.

Download the 64 bit image again, as your starting point will likely require running a 64 bit image on a 64 bit VM.

Are you setting up under hyper-v or virtualbox?

Make sure the virtualization is a 64 bit.  If using virtualbox, the link you posted has a fix if the only available option for a guest is 32 but.
