"The CPU has been disabled by the guest OS" error on first boot

I recently downloaded a retail image of OSX 10.8 Mountain Lion so that I could run it as a virtual machine on my windows desktop. It is powered by a AMD Phenom 8400 Triple Core processor, and has currently 4gb of ram. Whenever I try to boot up the VM in Workstation 9 I get "The CPU has been disabled by the guest OS" error. and then it will not go any farther into setup. I have found a bunch of suggestions for resolution however none have resolved the problem. I have tried:

Editing the configuration document cupid.1.etcetcetc

Editing the GuestOS to darwin instead of freebsd

Setting it to 2048 gb of ram instead of 1024

Setting it to one process instead of 2


Any further ideas on what I can do? I was hoping to use this as a server for my apple TVs and eventually to host an email server.
