This indicates trying to run an amd64 (64bit) kernel on an i386 (32bit)
processor.  That's a synthetic processor inside VirtualBox, so unlike
the real world, it's quite cheap to switch from one to the other...

If you go to Settings :: General for your VM, did you choose OS as 'BSD'
and Version as 'FreeBSD 64' ?

I'm assuming the host you're running VirtualBox on is 64bit capable...
