    System Freeze


    I have Win8 installed on my desktop on a second internal drive and have no problems. I now installed it on my laptop in a virtual box. When I run it in virtual box, after a few minutes it will just freeze. The only thing i can do is to start Task Manager and stop the process. Has anyone had this problem running it in a virtual box?

    I think I'm giving it enough RAM. But I'll give it a Little more. Once you shutdown the virtual machine, it does release the ram back to the host machine, doesn't it?
