Hello! I recently downloaded a Windows XP SP2 (x64) ISO file from Microsoft's official website. The ISO refuses to load and whenever I try to start the VM, I get a system halted error. On EVERY tutorial I've seen, there is this "First Run" thing that I never got! Please help

That file from Microsoft is not an install iso. Are you looking for a full install of XP? See this post. Use at your own risk.
