Windows 10 error: Your PC/Device needs to be repaired


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

I am trying to install Windows 10 on my Windows 7 host computer using Oracle VM VirtualBox. I tried various settings on the VirtualBox and I keep getting some or other error messages. Here is an error I am getting while installing Windows 10 using the default settings on VirtualBox:

"Your PC/Device needs to be repaired

This operating system uses the Physical Address Extension feature to support systems with more than 4 GB of RAM. You'll need to use a PC with a compatible processor to run the operating system

Error code: 0xc0000260

You'll need to use recovery tools. If you don't have any installation media (like a disc or USB device), contact your PC administrator or PC/Device Manufacturer".

Any idea how to resolve this error?

Some people are suggesting this solution:

- Right click on the VM name in your VirtualBox

- Select "Settings"

- Select "System"

- Select "Processor"

- Select "Enable PAE/NX"

I tried this but I am not able to resolve the error. If anyone successfully installed Windows 10 on VirtualBox, please let me know what configuration you have selected.
