Hello

 

I'm trying to setup a Windows 10 (legitimate) virtual machine on my Mac so that I can use Windows, I'm trying to avoid using bootcamp so I can use OSX and Windows at the same time.

 

I'm getting an error: 0x0000005D or:

whenever I try to run the machine. 

 

When I first turn it on it shows the Windows logo and then it goes to this screen. I read some places about a setting in BIOS fixing this but again I have a mac so I can't do that.

 

What could the issue be here?

 

After this article and another I saw before I was under the impression I would not have any troubles.

Figured out I needed to set it up as Windows 8.1, I was doing other operating or system and now it works. 

 

So this can be closed

Hi,

Glad you got it sorted out. We don't normally close posts in the OS forums. :)
