I'm not certain how you fix this... There are no "Switches" or "Options" that you can apply on the install.

Either the install recognizes the machine as 64bit compatible or it doesn't, which would lead you back to the board manufacturer.

Maybe someone here has the same setup and can assist...

check msconfig boot tab and look at maximum memory see if it's reduced below 6144 if so set it to 6144 and check max memory
