Your PC needs to restart.

Please hold down the power button.

Error Code: 0x0000005c



It seems as if the 32 Bit edition is not as stable as the 64 Bit.  I believe Microsoft is trying to migrate away from 32 bit.

Try installing the 64 bit edition on the Virtual Machine. Of course this is on a newer machine so I suspect this might be one reason for the ease of install.
