64bit Windows 7 Guest on 12.1 Intel i7
I have VirtualBox on 64bit Ubuntu 12.1 running on a Lenovo x220 with i7-2640M 1.8ghz x 4.
I am trying to install a Windows 7 64bit guest from an .iso (I have a legitimate license that came with the machine I'd like to get virtual) but get an error as Windows is trying to start.
Info: Attempting to load a 64-bit application, however this CPU is not compatible with 64-bit mode
In Virtualbox VT-x is enabled and when I run "grep --color vmx /proc/cpuinfo" from the shell I get red VMX's highlighted I guess showing that side of things is ok.
Any ideas much appreciated.

Figured this one out - I thought I had read somewhere that with a 64bit host OS it wasn't necessary to turn anything on in BIOS - anyway, I went and checked, turned on the virtualisation features and presto - all good
