Problem installing 64-bit OS on VM with Windows 7 32-bit as host

Hello

Not sure if this is the right forum for this, but here goes anyway.

I am running Windows 7 ultimate and have installed Oracle VM VirtualBox ver. 4.1.8 with extension pack. When I run VM-VB I am not given the option to select in the OS type for Windows Server 2008 R2 64-bit. The option given is only for the 32-bit Windows Server 2008. When I try to install Server 2008 R2 the installation process crashes with the error the host machine cannot support 64-bit.

Any advice how I can install Windows 2008 R2 64-bit as a VM on a Windows 7 32-bit host??

Thanks in advance.
