Without more information such defects are not really useful. Attach your VBox.log for starters and describe what went wrong...

I expect I'm doing something wrong, but seeing as this ticket is already open, I may as well post my results here:

  Windows failed to start. ...

  File: \windows\system32\boot\winload.exe

  Status: 0xc000035a

  Info: Attempting to load a 64-bit application, however this CPU is not
        compatible with 64-bit mode.

You used the wrong guest OS type. On a 32 bits host you *must* select a 64 bits type.
