    My PC is 64 bit machine and the Windows 7 as well.

    that would suggest its not 64bit unless its something to do with the vm itself perhaps its 32 bit software your using.

    check system info of your pc to make sure it is actually a x64 machine & not x86,you can just copy/paste system info in search then hit enter,unless you have more than 4gb installed then it will be 64bit if windows can see it


    in virtualbox its necessary to enable IO APIC vmware maybe different different
