Virtual Ubuntu Satanic 64 bit

Hi. I just downloaded Ubuntu Satanic 666.4 amd64 version to run on my 64 bit amd machine. I want to run it inside/ontop of my Windows Xp x64 OS. I use Sun xVM VirtualBox. I have run Win 7 32 & 64, Vista 32 & 64 and also Ubuntu 8.04 LTS as a virtual machine inside Win x64 and they all work. I like the Satanic version as ive used it befor. When trying to load Ubuntu Satanic as a virtual machine, i get the error message telling me "this version of ubuntu is not made for a 64 bit cpu". or something like that. Point being it wont install on my 64 bit system. Any help would be great. Thanx in advance.
