Heyas!

I wanted to try out Windows 10 today, but I didn't want to affect my current Windows 8.1 setup. So I decided to set up a virtual machine to test it out in Virtualbox. Unfortunately it didn't work because it needed something like PAE support (which Virtualbox has disabled as default). I turned that on, booted in, nothing but a different error message saying please reboot your pc and 4 error codes. The first error message was a Windows 8 style boot error.

I had the VM settings set to:

2GB Ram
128MB Video Memory (3D Video Acceleration on)
40GB Virtual Hard Disk Image
Other Windows (32-bit)

I used a 32-bit image to make it work guaranteed, but no change :(

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks!

EDIT: It does the same thing for Windows 8 Core so maybe I haven't set up the VM properly ;S

Try VMware Player.
It works for me.
I had 2 laptops, one with Win 7 and one with Win 8.1
I installed Win 10 TP into VMware Player in both laptops and both install went through with no issues.
