    An other fix is:
    * In Linux type the following in a terminal:
    VBoxManage setextradata [vmname] VBoxInternal/CPUM/CMPXCHG16B 1
    * In Windows type the following in a command prompt:
    “C:Program FilesOracleVirtualBoxVBoxManage.exe” setextradata [vmname] VBoxInternal/CPUM/CMPXCHG16B 1

    NOTE: Be sure to replace [vmname] with the name of your virtual machine.

    Also, using an IDE-controller for your HDD with an inflated disk might help.
    Be sure to provide enough Memory to your VM

  3. TheGroundZero says:

    Don’t forget to enable PAE/NX

    I’ve tried those thing but when i run the command it shows another error saying that VBoxManage.exe: error: could not find registered machine named ‘[server2012]’

    my machine name is server 2012
