How To Solve The Error “Code: 0x0000000A” While Installing Windows 8 Developer Preview?

#Topics: windows 8 error code 0x0000000a,your pc needs to restart please hold down the power button error code: 0x0000000a,0x0000000a windows 8,your pc needs to restart please hold down the power button error code 0x000000a,your pc needs to restart please hold down the power button error code 0x0000000a

I am using VirtualBox 4.1.2 for Windows hosts

Here is the configuration used for the virtual machine:
VirtualBox configuration

When I start the virtual machine some files are loaded and there is a progress-bar Loading Files... then after it is finished there is a black screen for some 30 or 35 seconds.

Then comes the splash screen Windows Developer Preview which is displayed again for some 30 or 35 seconds.

After that there is a blinking message which says

Your computer needs restart
Please hold the power button
Code: 0x0000000A
Para
…some values in Hexadecimal…

It blinks for some time then comes to a halt.
Here is a screenshot.

How do I get it to work?
Where is the problem?
Is it some problem with the RAM alloted to Windows 8 Developer Preview?

I am using this guide for reference.

Edit:
Another guide which can be used for reference.

Windows 8 needs hardware support for virtualization, and error 0x0000000A appears to be linked with the lack of the forementionned : althrough I see that your VT-x/AMD-V acceleration is enabled, I would recommend you to double check it (especially, verify that the feature is enabled in the BIOS setting menu).
