Unable to boot using VirtualBox on amd64

I can't boot any TurnKey appliances on my amd64 notebook, I get a kernel panic. Both Ubuntu Server 32-bit and 64-bit work fine on the same VitualBox VM.

Any ideas to what may the problema may be?

Known Linux kernel bug

This is discussed in the Appliance installation tutorial with VirtualBox:
Note for users with AMD CPUs: if you have an AMD Phenom or Barcelona-level
Opteron CPU enable IO APIC here to work around a Linux kernel bug.
Hope this helps.

Thank you, that did the trick. The network doesn't work, but that's another problem.
