    Ok, I did what you said but now I get an error code: 0x0000005C. It says,

    “Your computer needs to restart.
    Press hold down the power button.”

    Any thoughts?

      You’re using Virtualbox right?
      Please try start up repair in that case, it might fix it!

      Is there other error or warning message which are being displayed btw?

        Actually, I think I got it! Yes I am using VirtualBox, and I actually set the install version to just Windows instead of windows 8.1, which is what you guys suggested. I changed that and now its working. Also sorry I didn’t see that you had a whole article on that error code!

          Glad that you got it figured out. Let us know if you would like to see any tutorials that hasn’t been posted yet! We have just started this blog, so we’re trying really hard to get ideas to make it useful for people!

            Absolutely! Can’t go wrong with Windows tutorials and troubleshooting. I can’t say how much these have helped me in the past! Keep up the good work!

    Thanks! It helped. I decided to install x86 version instead 64b and assign it virtual RAM 2GB well below 4GB but your suggestion solved the problem.

      Glad I could help. Let me know if you have any suggestions or ideas to make this website better! Thanks for commenting btw! 🙂

  • I did it and got another error: 0xA.

    I had the same problem and made the change to PAE as stated above. Now I get an error message–
    VT-x/AMD-v hardware acceleration is not available on your system.Certain guest(e.g. OS/2 and ONX) require this feature and will fail to boot without it.
    This is followed by–
    Error code 0x0000000A ; parameters;;0xFFD00000,0x000000FF,0x0000000A,0x817875E3.
    Should I take this to mean that the two errors are cause and effect and that Windows 10 won’t run on this machine?
