Error Code: 0x0000005D


How to solve Error 0x0000005D when installing Windows 8 ( win 10 )

The above error occurs when you try to install Windows 8 on a new PC,
or by using a virtualization software like Oracle VM Virtual Box or VMWare .

This error happens because, unlike Windows 7 operating system, the Windows 8 is not fully compatible with all Pentium 4 processor models. In fact, in order to install Windows 8, your processor must support the No Execute Feature.

More specifically, for AMD processors this feature is called "No Execute (NX)"
and for Intel processors it is called "Execute Disable (XD)".

To solve the above Error (0x0000005D) follow the process below:

Enable " Data Execution Prevention" feature from your BIOS settings.

Notice: You must also enable (from your BIOS settings) the "Virtualization Technology (VT)" feature, if you are trying to install Windows 8 using a virtualization software like Oracle VM Virtual Box or VMWare .

To enable the above features, restart your computer and enter your BIOS Settings.
