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,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,your computer needs to restart 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).
