    Virtualbox frequent crashes with Dev Preview x64


    Well, as the title says, the os crashes, every time after I do something for a few seconds after logon. Sometimes it's some threading error, and sometimes memory management. I'm using the latest virtualbox, with a virtualized amd athlon x2 5000+ and 2gb guest RAM. Any ideas?

    Thank you very much Just for future reference, the two of the problems were:
    1. I wasn't using the latest Virtualbox
    2. I've chosen Win7, and not Win 7 x64 as the OS

    Edit: it still crashes with "SYSTEM THREAD EXCEPTION UNHANDLED"

    Make sure 2d and 3d acceleration are unchecked.
