Virtual box doesn't support 64 bit guests. You can quickly see what your cpu supports by using cat /proc/cpuinfo, 'vmx' is Intel's virt flag. Of course your cpu may support it but the bios may not depending on the make.

As I stated above, virtualbox does support 64-bit guest if your hardware is configured to allow it by enabling the virtualization features.
