Windows 10 error: Your PC/Device needs to be repaired
Are you getting installation errors while trying to install Windows 10 on Oracle VM VirtualBox? Learn how to resolve Windows 10 installation problems.
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.
