Windows 8 is Microsoft’s next-generation Windows operating system. On February 29, 2012, Microsoft provided a download of the Windows 8 consumer preview at the Global Mobile Communications Conference .
Windows 8 introduces a series of fascinating new functions and features, such as a new Metro interface, Metro style applications, a new version of the task manager, Ribbon-style resource manager, easier-to-use system recovery and restore functions, and Windows 8 Portable Windows To Go .
I downloaded the ISO image of Windows 8 for the first time , but when installing using Oracle VirtualBox , I encountered Error 0xc0000260 error:
Windows Recovrey Environment
Your PC needs to be repaired
An unexpected error has occurred.
Error code: 0xc0000260
After searching, I learned that the 0xc0000260 installation error was caused by the virtual machine configuration in VirtualBox . The solution is as follows:
1. Open the Windows 8 virtual machine configuration interface, and on the [ System-Processor ] configuration page, check the [ Enable PAE/NX ] extension feature. When enabled, the physical extended address ( PAE ) feature on the computer will be passed to the virtual computer.
2. On the [ Display-Graphics ] configuration page, check [ Enable 3D Acceleration ] and [ Enable 2D Video Acceleration ] so that the virtual computer can use the video acceleration capabilities of the graphics card.
Then you can reinstall it. Friends who also encounter 0xc0000260 error can try this method.
