Hi Badyl, Welcome to the Whonix forum!

Since the youtube video tutorial is in an unfamiliar language I’m not able to comment about its accuracy. Since you are running a 64bit VM on a 32bit host the following may apply here;

if you want to use 64-bit guest support on a 32-bit host operating system, you must also select a 64-bit operating system for the particular VM. Since supporting 64 bits on 32-bit hosts incurs additional overhead, VirtualBox only enables this support upon explicit request.

It is also possible that you have a low RAM isssue
