VirtualBox and 64bit O/S

VirtualBox and 64bit O/S how do you enable hardware virtualization? Do both the motherboard and cpu need to have it or just the cpu.

You need a cpu that supports it I'm aware intel has special chips. Not sure about amd however

Spec sheet says it does its a X2 5200+ AM2, but just cant get it to accept ubuntu 64 in VB.

Have you enabled hardware virtualization in the computers BIOS?

No , as i cant locate it.

What version of VB? found this on a forum dated early August, "There is also an issue with recent releases where the hardware virtualization wasn't detected properly. This has been fixed in the SVN release and should be included in 3.0.4. When it will be released is unknown, but probably sometime this month."
