It has been about five months, so I may misremember, but I think I had a
very similar problem earlier this year.  I had a 64 bit Win7 system (on a
64 bit processor, naturally -- Intel Core i5).  I installed VirtualBox
and set it up for a 64 bit FreeBSD install, then tried to install 64 bit
FreeBSD; I think it was 8.2, but I didn't keep careful notes that I can
check now.

It failed to work.  I think I got a "doesn't support long mode" error,
but again I am not 100% certain due to the passage of time and the fact I
have not really thought about it in the interim.
