Make sure that you are using the latest version of VMware player, only the latest version supports Windows 8, also give at least 20Gigs of hard disk space and 1Gig of memory.

if you have an older processor without virtu I believe, it won't let you install the 64 bit o/s in VmWare player. I tried that myself with Windows 8 on an Intel Core 2 Duo and it would only let me install the 32 bit version in Wmware Player. It did let me install the 32-bit o/s of Windows 8 though.

VMware Player 4 does not officially support Windows 8, but I have been able to install Windows 8 to a VM running within it. Only thing that didn't quite work properly was VMware Tools. The OS install went fine though.

The OP stated he/she has a Core i5 chip (@ the OP, it would be nice to know exactly what model of Core i5 you have though). I am 99% sure all Core i5 chips support the Virtualization feature - but there are 74 chips carrying the name Core i5 and I haven't checked them all. Again @ the OP, this is your cue :) .

That's true, I mised that. "I5". I looked here and it looks like all Core I-5(s) support it. http://ark.intel.com/Products/VirtualizationTechnology

If I am not mistaken, there is a setting in the bios for it though, that may be turned-off?

That's certainly possible, but if memory serves, VMware will inform the user before the VM is even started that they are not able to install 64 bit OSes in a virtual environment?

yes my i5-2400 3.10 GHz 4 core CPU has virtualization technology enabled, but i'm not sure if i have NX or XD (i think its what they're called) disable eXecute bit disabled or enabled? should i have it on or off? how do you turn it on/off in BIOS?

you can tell if you have it enabled or not in System Properties inside Windows.
System Properties
Advanced
Performance
Settings
Data Execution Prevention
I recommend the 2nd option for "Turn on DEP for all programs and services..."

I have seen some refs. about Vmware Player not letting you install the o/s because that 2nd option is not selected.

Keep in mind that it may be turned off in the BIOS as well. You should also check there for good measure.

What AsRock motherboard do you have? BIOS layout will be different depending on the board in question.

Per your motherboard manual here: http://download.asrock.com/manual/H67M.pdf

Within the BIOS go to Advanced > CPU Configuration and find the Intel Virtualization Technology and No-Execute Memory Protection settings, and make sure both are set to Enabled.

Edit: Per the Intel spec site for this CPU, both Virtualization and NX are supported on this processor: http://ark.intel.com/products/52207/Intel-Core-i5-2400-...
