    Which guest OSes are working?
    Which guest OSes are NOT working?
    Which exact model CPUs are involved?
    How much RAM is on the hostOS and allocated to each guestOS?

    Please be specific.

    A guess is more than 4+GB of RAM is allocated to the GuestOS or you are trying to install a 64-bit OS on a 32-bit system. Choosing the correct CPU architecture for the OS is important.

    Do you have a PAE cpu?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Physical_Address_Extension

    If so have you enabled it?
