Install 64-bit CentOS on 64-bit Windows 7 using VirtualBox

My Laptop is ThinkPad T410 with Intel Core i5 M520 @ 2.4GHz and Windows 7 Enterprise 64-bit. I want to install a CentOS 5.6 64bit as a guest OS using VirtualBox.

But had the error "Your CPU does not suupoort long mode. Use a 32bit distribution."

It turns out that I have to turn off a BIOS setting for VT-d which is enabled by default. After that, when you create a new machine, enable Settings->System->Acceleration->Enable VT-x/AMD-v. Then everything works smoothly.
