I reinstalled the 64bit AMD version or VirtualBox.

Is this a VirtualBox setting or a Windows Vista setting?

More recent versions of VirtualBox will support amd64 cpus in

virtualization mode. In order to do that, you also have to enable the

appropriate settings on the virtualbox image control panel.

AFAICT, VirtualBox  should be at least version 2.0.6 (2.1.4 is in jaunty).

My main desktop box is a core2quad Q6600 machine, and it does

virtualization support (vmx in /proc/cpuinfo) so your hardware should

be able to do the necessary virtualization stuff.

neither way here are some tips...

Intel Core 2 Quad 8200 does not support virtualization extensions see here:

you should download and use virtualbox for windows x64 version, you can find it here:

another alternative is VMWare Server, which runs on i386 and x64 hosts(linux, windows) you can find it here:

that's much pretty it for free virtualization software which can be run from windows.

running virtualization software from Linux there are little more alternatives:

VMWare Server
