Windows 8 Setup Error: HAL_INITIALIZATION FAILED. Your PC ran into a problem that it couldn’t handle, and now it needs to restart.

The reason for HAL_INITIALIZATION FAILED Windows 8 installation error is the choose of unsupported system for Windows 8 setup.

The first Windows 8 release is supported on some limited numbers of systems:
Hyper-V in Windows 8 Developer Preview,
Hyper-V in Windows Server 2008 R2,
VMware Workstation 8.0 for Windows,
VirtualBox 4.1.2 for Windows.

But Windows 8 setup will not be supported for the following systems at first hand at least:
Microsoft Virtual PC (all VPC versions),
Microsoft Virtual Server (all VS versions),
Windows 7 XP Mode,
VMWare Workstation 7.x or older





Your PC ran into a problem that it couldn’t handle, and now it needs to restart.
You can search for the error online: HAL_INITIALIZATION FAILED

I suggest Windos users who are trying to install Windows 8 using Virtual PC, don't do that!
You can download Oracle VirtualBox 4.1.2 from VirtualBox website. Then latest Windows 8 release can be installed on a virtual machine running on Oracle VirtualBox 4.1.2
