You have to enable the PAE mode for this VM. There was a bug in the VM causing a VM crash under these circumstances. This bug will be fixed in the next maintenance release.

Oh, and x86_64 will not install because VT-x is disabled on your hardware. Actually I strongly suggest you to check the BIOS setting and enable VT-x. As you have a Core i7, you can enable Nested Paging for your VMs as well which will significantly improve the VM performance!
