Virtual Box - Install WIndows 8.1 x64 Eval on OS X host

I recently tried to create a Windows 8.1 VM using virtual box on my Macbook pro, but ran into an error immediately after boot:
Your PC needs to restart.
Please hold down the power button.
Error code: 0x000000C4
The solution is here: but it needs to be tweaked slightly for OS X.

Open the terminal and do the following, making sure to use the name of your Win 8 vm instead of [name]

cd VirtualBox\ VMs
VBoxManage setextradata [name] VBoxInternal/CPUM/CMPXCHG16B 1
 That's it!
