Thank you for posting.  

Did you notice this problem using any other utilities, VMware etc.?

I did take the liberty on searching for "How to fix Virtualbox only showing 32bit option?" and found several hits.

Did you install VirtualBox and you were trying to install 64-bit guest OS but there was only option to 32-bit? You can probably fix this issue fast and easy.

If VirtualBox is showing only 32-bit options in the list, make sure that these apply for your computer:

  1. Host OS is 64-bit
  2. Intel Virtualization Technology and VT-d are enabled in the BIOS
  3. If using Windows check that Hyper-V is disabled
  4. (optional) Check that you have newest version here

Thank you, 

Do you know if the system has this problem with all Virtual Machine applications, or does the problem only lie with Virtual Box?

Yeah I think Vmware and Virtual Box are two of the best known VM applications.  Did you try Vmware and did it have the same problem as Virtual Box?  I looked and I haven't seen any Dell documentation that bios revision A10 can cause this type of problem.  So I am checking to see if this is only a problem with Vitual Box or with all VM applications.
