    I follow that rule for Windows VMs but Linux distros need less RAM so I am able to run 64-bit Ubuntu, for instance, with only 1GB of RAM.

    I'm trying to install Ubuntu 14.04 on a virtual machine. What I've done:
    1. Downloaded Ubuntu 14.04 .iso file on my computer
    2. Created the new Virtual Machine
    3. Set the OS to Linux, Ubuntu
    4. Assigned it 3/8GB of RAM memory
    5. Created a new virtual hard drive, dynamically allocated
    6. Gave it 30/500GB of memory
    7. Tried to start it
    8. Got this error: Screenshot by Lightshot
    9. When I click 'Abort': Screenshot by Lightshot

    I didn't even get to the part where I mount my .iso file. Have no idea what this is about.
    Now, please, answer if you have an idea of how this may be solved.
    Thanks in advance
    Hi there,
    Most of us get that kind of things on the latest VirtualBox these days, especially on Win8.1.

    All related to the new vbox 4.3.14 way of running.

    Try a test build vbox 4.3.15 from here. (got removed)
    Added this because it should fix some of the 'supR3HardenedWinReSpawn' errors.

    Newer build:
    here (temporary available)
    It's mentioned that this test build is faster at launching. Good to try for all of us having issues.
    Read the info here:

    Personally the only good version of vbox 4.3.x was 4.3.12. Now from 4.3.14 we all get to see weird stuff when launching.

    I might move entirely to VMware Player these days if I get issues with vbox 4.3.15 as well.

    Regarding your issues with VMware Player:
    I've encountered the VT-x thing in the past but it was indeed enabled in the BIOS. Somehow the software doesn't always get the right info between version upgrades...
    -remove Player.
    -Remove all Vmware folders/settings from %appdata% and c:\ProgramData
    -reinstall the newest Player version (now that VT-x is already enabled in the BIOS).

    Good luck.

    On my config, this version of Vbox seems to work fine so far with all vms here.
