    error 0x0000005d (Virtualbox)


    I'm trying to install Windows 8 RP 64bit EN, in Virtualbox (Latest Version) and I got this error 0x0000005d at the beginning of the installation.

    My host is Windows 7 Pro 64bit (Core i3).

    Do you know the solution ?

    Thank you.

    Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit

    I have the same problem:
    When I try to install Windows 8 RP (June 2012) in Virtual Box 4.1.16, it shows "Windows(R)" for a few seconds, then it gives me the following message, white text on black screen:

    Your computer needs to restart.
    Please hold down the power button.
    Error code: 0x0000005D

    Host OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bir
    CPU: Intel Core2 Duo E6750
    PAE/NX: Enabled
    Boot from ISO (also tried boot from host DVD, same error)
    Tried both 64 and 32 bit versions

    Windows 8 Customer Preview worked fine on the same PC with one step older 4x Virtual Box.

    SHA 1 Hash on ISO tested ok.
