VirtualBox, VMware Workstastion … showing only 32-bit guest versions, even VT-x and VT-d Feature are enabled in BIOS

If you have similar situation and have no idea what to do, here is solution.

You probably have Hyper-V enabled as part of your Windows configuration. Hyper-V is the successor of Microsoft Virtual PC and is probably enabled by default, during Windows installation or some manual user activity. However, after you uncheck/disable this Windows Feature and reboot your Windows machine, you should be able to install 64-bit guest versions within your favorite virtualization platform.

So, with combination Windows Key + q or from Control Panel, search for Turn Windows Features on or off. After you open this windows, scroll until you see option Hyper-V, uncheck it and reboot your machine. When system is back, open your virtualizion platform and you should be able to install 64-bit guest operation systems as well.
