I find that, when trying to run windows 8 on Xen cloud (and also when running it in ESXi), the installer bluescreens with
0x0000005D (UNSUPPORTED PROCESSOR)
Initially I thought it was giving the VM a 32-bit processor (I was using a 64-bit image), but this was not the case. PAE is enabled. What else could this be?
Additionally, trying to do it on VMWare ESXi allows it to boot, but it remains on the loading screen forever during the first reboot during setup. Why?
