Windows 10 installation error - Your PC needs to restart

Date: 02 Oct 2014    Group: Operating Systems    Category: Windows OS   

I am trying to install Windows 10 on Oracle VirtualBox and I am getting the following error:

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

Can anybody help me understand what this means and how to resolve this error? I really want to skip this error and checkout the new features in Windows 10 tech preview.

It happens when the minimum requirement of hardware(RAM) is not provided or may be Oracle Virtual box isn't compatible to install windows 10 as it is latest OS.
May be Oracle virtual box require a latest update to fix this issue.
Try this may work: To avoid error, make sure that you provide at least 2 GB of RAM if OS is 64 Bit or 1 GB of RAM if 32 Bit And also provide at least 2 Core of your processor.
If still getting error, I recommend you to install windows 10 in VMware workstation which I personally used to install and successfully installed.
Hope this information useful for you.
