Kernel Data Inpage Error (Virtualbox, windows 8)

    Question

  • This is the first time when I use Oracle Virtualbox. I tried to install Windows 8, but an error message (maybe w8 bsod) appeared. The installation started, and when 'Expanding Windows files" procedure is running, a blue screen appears: http://kepfeltoltes.hu/110915/w8error_www.kepfeltoltes.hu_.jpg
    I can't install it, but I'd really like to try the new operating system. Please help me!

  • I've fixed it. The problem was that I created a virtual machine, not a virtual disc image.

  • Some people have been able to install it in the last version of VirtualBOX, anyway, the better way is install Windows on Hyper-V or VMware 8

  • I got it to work by changing a few settings. I don't know what combination did the trick, but this is what I changed:

    Processor cores: 1 -> 4

    PAE/NX: off -> on (I don't even know what this is)

    SATA controller for ISO - Use host I/O cache: off -> on

    I think that's all I changed...
