RESOLVED: Your Computer does not support Long Mode. Use a 32bit Distribution.

Hardware: Dell PowerEdge 2950 , Dual Xeon Quad Core 3 ghz, 8 gb Ram

When creating a virtual machine with 64bit OS you may encounter:

"Your Computer does not support Long Mode. Use a 32bit Distribution."

Here's what resolved it for me...

  1. Reboot system, and enter BIOS (F2)
  2. Enter "CPU Information"
  3. Enable "Virtualization Technology"

  4. Save changes and Reboot, then go back to installing your OS on VM appliance
  5. Have a nice day!
