Installing Windows 8.1 on Oracle Virtual Box

I had to setup a virtual machine with Windows 8.1. So the setting up of the virtual machine was fine but when the machine start to boot from the virtual CD drive was getting an error saying “your PC needs to be repaired error code 0x0000225”.

To fix it, stop the virtual machine, go to Settings -> System and check “Enable IO APIC”

refer more details on this link.

Upon fixing the above error again crashing up with the following error:

Your PC needs to restart.
Please hold down the power button.
Error Code: 0x000000C4
Parameters
0x0000000000000091
0x000000000000000F
0xFFFFF80213D5DA80
0x0000000000000000

To fix the above start the command prompt and run the below commands:

1. To lists all the virtual machines in your PC.
C:\”c:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\VBoxManage.exe” list vms
“SharePoint2010” {bsdhy5577-c949-4666-862e-87bb3081a557}
“SharePoint2013” {2cd32b13-c5d2-41b9-b7be-76bcrt47adea}
“Windows 8.1″ {3358a0cb-86e3-4c0d-9e87-2a48a0wes06f}

2.Upon knowing your virtual machine name, execute the following command:
C:\”c:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\VBoxManage.exe” setextradata “Windows 8.1” VBoxInternal/CPUM/CMPXCHG16B 1

(this will enable the CPU instruction CMPXCHG16B)

That is all what you have to do. After the virutal machine starts to boot up without any problem.
