    Your processor have vt technology? enable it on setup of your machine, then try boot

    AFAIK Intel Celeron does not support intel VT which is required to run 64bit guest.
    try 32bit instead

    Thumbs up Re: unable to boot bt5 x64 on vmware

    1. In bios you will find something know as Visualization Technology (VT) make sure it is Enabled.
    In case you are not able to find in Bios please download this http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/support
    /highlights/processors/toolspiu/ (download by clicking down the resource and utilities) and in this you can
    know if your VT is enabled or not.
    2. Make Sata Drive AHCI/ Sata to IDE in bios (important step). It will be in Advance tab, system
    configuration.
    3. USB Emulation if enabled is not an issue it will still work.
    4. USB booting in the top priority save and exit bios.

    Just change you Sata Drive controller setting in Bios to "IDE". This will solve your problem.
