Today I want to install an Windows 2012 VM on my XenServer home lab environment. So I created the VM. Inserted the Windows 2012 ISO in VM. I start the VM. After loading of the Windows files I see the following error.
Your PC needs to restart.
Please hold down the power button.
Error Code 0x0000005D
This error message leaded me to this article CTX135255
The solution is to enable, “No-Execute Memory Protection” setting in the BIOS of the Host. This setting can be found under Advanced Options > Processor Options. This feature is also known as Data Execution Prevention.
After enabling this option in the BIOS of the host, the installation of Windows 2012 started normally.
