I have installed and run Linux Mint 10 on my "HP Pavilion Elite m9650f Desktop PC", and everything is running fine. That is, everything but the..Infuriating...64bit. Before I migrated, the computer had full 64bit support (yes, I checked). Now, however, it is bound to the shackles of 32bit and wasted RAM. Does anyone know of a solution, BIOS or otherwise, that could remedy this problem? When I attempt to use Linux 64 bit it give a message along the lines of: "Halting. An x86_64 enabled kernal is needed. Only detected an i686 kernel." I have also looked into my hardware and understand it has a pyscho BIOS. Any help would be appreciated.

Well, I'm no Linux expert, but I did some googling and found this forum thread: http://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=1
I hope this helps.
