Error 0x000000C4 when booting Windows 8.1 ISO

Reported by: thehimalayas Owned by:

Host type: Windows

Description

When I start the VM with the ISO for Win8.1 Build 9415 x64, the VM crashes almost immediately. Receive a Stop error message that resembles the following:

STOP: 0x000000C4 (parameter1, parameter2, parameter3, parameter4)

For comparison, VMware Player boots fine.

Please attach a VBox.log file for such a VM session. Did you select the 64-bit Windows OS type?

And, if you attempt to do an "interactive upgrade" from within an running Win 8 x64 VM, you'll get the following message:

You can't install Windows 8.1 Preview because your processor doesn't support CompareExchange128

The solution is here:

 http://4sysops.com/forums/topic/windows-server-2012-r2-on-virtual-box-error-0x000000c4/

This is required for both Server 2012 R2 and Windows 8.1 VMs

I also have same problem. VBox 4.2.16 on Windows 7 Home Premium. I have attached the log file

comment:7 Changed 9 months ago by frank

AnuP, your Windows 8.1 ISO is 64-bit / x64, right? In that case, please use the Windows 8.1 / 64-bit OS type!

I have executed the setextradata command to no avail. help please?

ndiii012, VBox 4.1.12 is way too old.

comment:12 Changed 3 weeks ago by ndiii012

Thanks frank,

I am relatively new to Ubuntu and assumed the Store would give me the latest version. Will try the 4.3 version
