This kernel requires an x86-64 CPU, but only detected an i686 CPU

The other trick of the day:

I was installing a rhel-based 64 bits iso on a virtualbox 32 bits xp host. This is possible thanks to the decent cpu I'm using at work and I knew that it worked because I had already installed a 64 bits debian (wheezy).

The error message was something like:

This kernel requires an x86-64 CPU, but only detected an i686 CPU

During my first virtual machine installation, I was using default (32-bits) rhel version proposed by virtualbox.

The trick was just to turn OS type to 64-bits version in virtualbox virtual machine configuration parameters and it worked.

As it was not as high as expected in google rank, I just add it here...
