Making a new kernel in Debian Linux is very easy when done correctly. However, there are many ways to go wrong. Since you are doing a clean build (make clean), all the files have to be compiled and linked. This process takes many hours and you may not discover a tiny mistake until the end. So it is important to get it right.
This was the fourth attempt and I got it right. You may want to watch this video a couple of times before attempting to build your first kernel.
Thanks to all the different sources I found on Internet. Debian.org especially the wiki was great help.

Thank you. I'm running VirtualBox on a Windows 7 with Intel i7-2600 (8 core) 16 GB ram by ZT systems (made in USA and excellent value). Even though the CPU allows hardware visualization the BIOS must allow it too. My other system an i5 (about three years old) me to run 64 bit guests. I believe you need a 64 bit CPU and the right BIOS which allows hardware 64 bit something or other. Good luck. Hope this helps.
Good video-tut! Thanks. It helped clear up a few things for me. Would you mind telling me what OS you are running? I see that you did the tut in virtualbox running the deb kernel x64 install.
