Today I tried installing Windows 8.1 with virtualization via Oracle VM Virtual Box. As soon as I started booting it with Windows 8.1 ISO file I was greeted with the following screen:

Your PC need to restart, Please hold down the power button Error Code : 0x000000C4

From the following post I got the solution for this issue https://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=56196&p=260136

You need to navigate to "C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\" via commane prompt and run the following command:

VBoxManage.exe list vms

The goal of the above command is to get the name of your virtual machine which you will need for the next command. After getting the name you need to run the following command:

VBoxManage.exe setextradata "Windows 8" VBoxInternal/CPUM/CMPXCHG16B 1

Above "Windows 8" is the name of my virtual machine. It can be different for you. Below is the screenshot of my command prompt while doing the same:

After running the above command I was able to proceed with Windows 8.1 ISO iwith VirualBox. Below is the screenshots for the same:
