    Question Error message when attempting Win10 set-up from iso in Oracle VM.

    Attempting to use Oracle VM for the first time in line with the guidance given in Windows Secrets October 16 2014.
    The following error message occurs when trying to load Windows 10 for first time.
    I get the same message whether trying to boot from iso or from a real DVD.
    Computer is running Windows 7 64 bit. It's a fairly new AMD quad core processor with Asus motherboard.

    I get the new blue "4 window pane" logo and after a few seconds the following pops up:-

    Your PC needs to restart.
    Please hold down the power button.

    Error Code: 0x0000005D
    Parameters:
    0x00000000078BFBFF
    0x000000002B93FB7F
    0x0000000000000011
    0x0000000000000000

    Could this be the result of an error in the download from Microsoft?
    I have found that there is a similar question posed on the Microsoft community site and so far no definitive answer.

    Problem resolved and now getting to grips with using Oracle VM and Win 10-64 preview!
    I found the answer to my problem on the Microsoft community forum here:
    http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/w...9-789f7337333f
    In short although I am running Windows 7 when setting up Oracle VM on the "General" tab select Windows 8.1 and it worked for me.

    In this week's Windows Secrets newsletter Fred Langa covers the problem that I encountered! On reflection I failed to read the intructions properly and made a complete foul-up of setting the type of windows that would be run in the VM. I can now report that I am enjoying test driving W10 and am using Firefox and Irfanview without troubles.
