VirtualBox doesn't detect my AMD virtualization

Tried to enable hardware assisted virtualization, needed for OS/2 guest installation. After enabling the option - both in global preferences and in VM settings I found that the machine won't boot. I saw for a moment OS/2 logo, then it disappeared and VM stucks with black sceren. I examined Runtime Attributes in Session Information and there VT-x/AMD-V was disabled. I know my cpu is supporting AMD-V - it's already working in Parallels Workstation. I tested AMD-V with tools like "Securable" and I can confirm, that hardware assisted virtualization is detected and working well. My CPU is AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ AM2 - 65nm, code name: Brisbane, revision: BH-G1. My motherboard is Gigabyte GA-MA69G-S3H, Bios revision F6 (latest), virtualization support is enabled in BIOS settings. Hardware virtualization is not working (or can't be enabled) in VirtualBox 1.5.2 - 1.6.4, tested on my machine for several months.
