    Hi.
    I'm new here in MDL but I've been browsing this forum for quite a time now.
    Here's the thing..

    Before I install Windows 8 on my PC, I tried it first on a virtual machine (Oracle).
    I loaded the CD image and after a while...




    Your PC needs to restart.
    Please hold down the power button.
    Error Code: 0x0000005D
    Parameters:
    0x03060F06
    0x756E6547
    0x49656E69
    0x6C65746E



    I did a little research about this and it was mentioned that it was the motherboard's fault. NX should be supported and enabled. The thing is, it isn't enabled. I checked if my motherboard supports NX, and yes; it supports NX.
    It says that I should go through the BIOS settings to enable it. But no option on my BIOS that allows me to modify my CPU options.

    I need urgent help...
    Thanks

    Can you please provide us with the model/manufacturer of both your motherboard and processor?

    Its refering to your processor not motherboard...


    Code:
    This is due to the fact that Windows 8 requires a processor compatible with the following functions: SSE2, PAE and NX bit. All Pentium 4 are compatible with SSE2 and EAP: the problem may come from the NX bit. •First, make sure your Pentium 4 model supports the NX bit: for sockets 423 or 478 processors, then it won't work (in most cases).
     •For sockets 775 processors, it can be compatible. If the CPU supports NX-bit, you can install Windows 8 32-bit or 64-bit (it depends on the models!). 
    
    why dont you go to ms website and download and run Windows8-UpgradeAssistant this will check you system and report its findings... :rolleyes:

    OK, Suggest that you download and install VMware-player-5.0.1-894247 - its free and use that to do your test install...

    Ooops,sorry about that - I looked at the page for the reported system model (V3000),instead of looking for it via the model code(which actually indicated the V3235TU).. For it the F39 bios revision is apparently the newest available.

    Edit: I just reread your initial post and I want to clarify something - you're trying now to install it in VirtualBox or you've tested in VB and are trying to install it 'for real' (sorry,but your wording is kinda ambiguous)?

    Reading through the posts, I am not clear what host OS you are using to run VirtualBox on. I have had similar problems and there are a couple of things that may be relevant.

    Firstly, you need to make sure that the VM for the Windows 8 install has the correct settings - see this ref "bizzhacks.com/virtualbox-windows-8-upgrade-from-windows-xp/" for these, particularly the PAE/NX setting for System -> Processor, and that the equivalent entry in your BIOS is set (names vary according to BIOS maker, on my Gigabyte motherboard it is called "No-Execute Memory Protect).

    Secondly, if you are running Linux as your host OS, you need to make sure that your kernel passes on this setting to VB. My Ubuntu 10.04 kernel did not, and I had to install a generic-pae kernel that did - see "help.ubuntu.com/community/EnablingPAE" for example.

    Hope this helps.
