Creating a Windows 2012r2 in Citrix Xen Server - Error code 0x000000c4

I am attempting to create a virtual windows 2012r2 server in Citrix XenServer6.0  but keep getting an error during the initial install.  The same error occurs when trying to create any windows 8 build as well.

I have of course searched around and did find a few articles that referenced adjusting "Data Execution Prevention" feature within the BIOS.  I have done that but the issue still occurs.

The install begins and its starts to load the files I then see the windows logo and immediately see the error message.  That stays on screen for a moment and the vm reboots. *error message is below

I have 3 other virtual servers created all server 2008r2 builds with no problems.

The physical box has the following:
HP Proliant ML350 G6
2x Intel Xeon CPU E5620 @ 2.40GHz and the BIOS version is HP D22
XenServer 6.0.0-50762p

Your PC needs to restart.
Please hold down the power button.
Error Code: 0x000000C4

Any help would be great

To avoid this error, go to Advanced Options > Processor Options and enable the No-Execute Memory Protection setting in the BIOS of the host. This feature is also known as Data Execution Prevention.
Windows 2012 R2 may not be a support guest OS on XenServer 6.0. XenServer 6.2 does fully support Windows 2012 r2

2008 R2 is latest Xen server 6 with U2 supports
