Sandbox installation Issues

    I am facing CPU memory related issue. As soon as I start the sandbox, it gives me the following issue

    This Kernel requires an x86-64CPU, but only detected i686 CPU.
    Unable to boot – please use a kernel appropriate for your CPU.

    I have installed HDP2 Sandbox for VirtualBox for windows.
    My machine is x86 and 64 bit. Do I need to have some settings or did I installed an incorrect version?
