Something may be more fundamentally wrong than I thought. I don't see
"64 bit" as a choice anywhere in Vbox Manager. When I look at the
settings for the VM, I can't find anywhere that tells me if it's 32 bit
or 64 bit. 

I did check, and the VirtualBox RPM does say it's x86_64. I did get an
F20 VM installed in KVM, but it's so slow that it's worthless.

The host machine is a quad core Haswell (i7) so I believe it has the
necessary hardware virtualization stuff, and it's turned on in the BIOS.
