    Hello all,

    I am currently trying to install Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials on a Dell Dimension 5100 with Intel Pentium 4 processor,
    and get the following error:

    Your PC needs to restart.
    Please hold down the power button ...
    Error Code:0x000000C4

    I looked this up, and found info relating to an unsupported CPU. I looked up my processor info and get this:

    Logical Processor to NUMA Node Map:
    ** NUMA Node 0
    Logical Processor to Cache Map:
    ** Data Cache 0, Level 1, 16 KB, Assoc 8, LineSize 64
    ** Unified Cache 0, Level 2, 1 MB, Assoc 8, LineSize 128
    Logical Processor to Group Map:
    ** Group 0

    As far as I can see, this processor should support the Server 2012 R2 installation. Is there anything further I can do to get this up and running? I previously had Server 2012 up and running on this machine, but removed it for a clean installation.
