    Code:
    "c:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\VBoxManage.exe" setextradata "VM Name" VBoxInternal/CPUM/CMPXCHG16B 1
    I didn't managed to test this myself because I'm waitng for the Store to finish downloading or pending... very annoying here.

    Back to business:
    Did you replaced the "VM Name" string with the actual name of your VM?

    Also:
    Do not try a x64 VM since you don't have VT-x on the cpu.

    I wasn't able to get the 8.1 Preview to install in a VirtualBox VM either so I used VMWare Player instead. No problems installing in VMWare Player.

    Good luck.
    VMware Player should do just fine.

    VirtualBox will fix this issue in the next version.

    Hi,

    I tried the VMware player and it installed fine. But still I face some issues. Start menu won't appear even after 2-3 minutes after launching the VM. Everything is very slow. I can't even access task manager. What can I do? Is it because of my system spec it is running so slowly?

    I would download the ISO again, I had that problem with Eight enterprise at first, then the new ISO worked.
