Previously, I asked how to dual boot fedora 22 workstation. Since, I have downloaded it to the hard drive and it wiped windows basically. I now can not change my virtualization settings so that when Virtual Box 5.0 is run it only shows 32-bit process. How do i enable it so i can install my Kali-linux through VB. It gives me an error of This Kernel requires an X86-64 CPU, but only detected an i686 CPU. Sometimes, it says that i am missing the kernel PAE but, i only have a 4 gb ram processor and i can not access more unless i give it more backup space? can anyone help me? I am the definition of NEWBEE when it comes to Fedora, Linux, Virtual Box, and Terminal. I am learning fast but, there is not much information online about Fedora workstation 22. Thank you for your help. It is greatly appreciated.

Please use kvm and virt-manager to do virtualization it is more integrated with Fedora. If you have installed Fedora on i686 it will not be able to do 64 bits if you installed 64 bits then it should work how ever no idea on virtual box, but it will be natural on KVM
