I hope i'm here in the right place.

I have a hackintosh whit 10.3.6 installation, also running virtualbox whit windows XP 32-bit. Now i downloaded the 2012 RC from mircosoft for testing. Bit this is strictly 64-bit. Now when i start de box it's booting and ends in an error telling me that this is not 64 Bit.

No i googled and found that virtualbox can run 64-bit (even on a 32-bit host), but vt-x must be enabled. And the big problem whit hackintosh is that you have to disable VT-X to run an guest.

So is there a possibility to run a 64-bit guest on a hackintosh?

Oh... CPU is a Core2Duo 2.8 ghz, so that one is 64 bit.

or download an older x32 build of xp... for virtual machines i see no use for x64 architecture. if you're giving them >4gb ram then you should be running them from boot. not in a VM. as long as you download the same edition (pro or home) your key should work...
