And you loading 32bit of WCPR
I think you will have errors

Need to do a clean install in
a clean partition or clean HDD.

I too tried virtual box on a dell and got this same error. I am running an e2160 in a desktop with xp home as the host. The e2160 does not support the VM extensions that a zdnet article that was based on running off of virtual box said it needed. I will try vmware player now.

Check box

win8_VM_cpu_ext.png
I just clickedy clicked the check box and booooooom, it works.

I read somewhere that the access to 3d may have to be apparent... although that would be silly on a install... right...

Let me know if this fixes.

I didn't get that message. But, after installing yesterday, I rebooted many times back into Windows 7 and Again into Windows8. I switched off for the night. Today I found that I could boot into Windows 8 but Windows 7 stalled before the desktop. I inserted the Windows 7 install DVD and did a startup repair. All is well again. Oddly, it didn't destroy the Windows boot manager (I have a dual boot - my choice - in separate partitions. It normally did this in the past.

    Use several different computers during a day, so specs are irrelevant.

Ouch, shouldn't really have to do that but oh well, it is a beta after all.

Worked for me, but now it's flashing with a black background and white letters. Please restart your PC. I'll post a screen in a new thread.

As information, I have a Dell Latitude D600 and a Dell Inspiron 600M, they are essentially the same system, the 600M is 1.6 GHZ and 1 Gig of memory, the D600 is 2 GHZ and 2 gig of memory. I started the install process on the D600 (with an Windows XP base) and at the first 'restart' I received an 0xc0000260 error. It was not a blue screen error, it was earlier in the process. Long story short, I moved the drive to the 600M system and the install process completed and the Win 8 system runs (with audio issues). If I put the drive back into the D600 I get the blue screen 0xc0000260 message after a message that the system is going into 'automatic repair'. Setup on the D600 shows a 'boot speed' option, other than that I can see no difference in the hardware configuration. They are both at the latest A16 BIOS level. I have occasionally gotten an error code "file \hiberfil.sys 0xc0000411" instead of the 0xc0000260, the first time I received this was after slowing the boot speed, but it is not a consistent result of changing the boot speed.
