Virtual Box Error Code 0xc0000225 when installing Windows Server 2012 VM

Got the following error when attempting to Install Windows Server 2012 in Virtual box:

Windows failed to start.
A recent hardware or software change might be the cause.
Status: 0xc0000225

To fix, Open the settings for the virtual machine:

System > Enable IO APIC

The following was taken from the Virtualbox manual, chapter 3:

In any host, you should enable the I/O APIC for virtual machines that you intend to use in 64-bit mode. This is especially true for 64-bit Windows VMs. See the section called “"Advanced" tab”. In addition, for 64-bit Windows guests, you should make sure that the VM uses the Intel networking device, since there is no 64-bit driver support for the AMD PCNet card; see the section called “Virtual networking hardware”.

I probably came across this issue because i select [Other Windows] as a template for creating my VM as Windows Server 2012 was not on the list, so none of the options were pre-selected.
