Go to about this Mac
Click additional information.
Go down to Software and click on it. You should see 64 bit Kernel and Extensions with either a yes or a no. If it says yes then your good to go.

Yeah just go back into Multibeast and check it off also make sure you check off System Utilities as well.

I would go back into BIOS and make certain you checked 64 bit under HPET, otherwise the boot options in MultiBeast will have no effect.
