This question already has an answer here:
In trying to boot Ubuntu 14.04 in VirtualBox on Windows 7, I get this message: "This kernel requires an x86-64 CPU, but only detected an i686 CPU. Unable to boot. Please use a kernel appropriate for your CPU." As a newbie, I'm completely at a loss!! Can somebody please help me fix this problem? Eagerly awaiting for help -- any help.
