Windows 8 is lagging in VirtualBox
  

Hello friends, I have installed the DP into the vertual machine (Oracle VirtualBox) but I found that this was vey laggy in the performance. It is having 1GB RAM and 128MB video memory and I don?t think that this is not enough for this. Can you tell me that what is the problem with this and how it can be resolved.

Re: Windows 8 is lagging in VirtualBox

I would like to tell you that the Windows 8 will function on the similar hardware as well as powers as it is for the Windows Vista and Windows 7. Here is the minimum requirement for that:
  1. 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor
  2. 1 gigabyte (GB) RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit)
  3. 16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)
  4. DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver

Re: Windows 8 is lagging in VirtualBox

I have spent the last few days about studying about the Windows 8 written. For me it is running under VMware Fusion, here too there were problems with version 3.x, 4.x only VMWare Fusion did not work with Windows frickeling. This blue screen will certainly have seen those who have tried to install Windows in a VirtualBox 8. The solution in my case was rather simple, I managed to get an executable Windows 8 executed in the free VirtualBox virtualization software. If you have not done so, you should to download Windows 8 and you then fire up VirtualBox. Now install and run VirtualBox. By clicking on New, we create a new virtual machine. Here you can type a name for the virtual machine and specify the type of award. I choose Microsoft Windows / Other Windows. In the next step we create the boot disk. Here we can use the preset points. I choose as a dynamic disk size 20 GB. This is the maximum 20 GB of space. Finally, you get a summary:

Re: Windows 8 is lagging in VirtualBox

I don?t think that this is showing you the problem like this. I am saying this because I me and some of my other friends are also using the same and they are not getting this issue and so I have doubt that there is some problem with the installation or something else with the system that you are using. The advantage of installing a virtual operating system is mainly that you do not have to worry about crashing your system, and also secure the new system. There are several alternatives to a virtual OS to install and two of these are VMWare Player and VirtualBox virtual machine.

Re: Windows 8 is lagging in VirtualBox

The first thing you should keep in mind to try to install Windows 8 is in a virtual machine. I must say that VMWare is also a great application to virtualize, but for reasons of comfort, ease and availability, this time use VirtualBox, which is multiplaform and free, and it stands clear of his assistants.

Re: Windows 8 is lagging in VirtualBox

How much memory do you have selected for that. By default that is giving you 20 GB but my recommendation to you is to use of 30 GB at least to avoid such problems.

Re: Windows 8 is lagging in VirtualBox

Once you are completed with the installation of that then go to the Options (Settings) and select the category where there is System (System) tab and go to System Board (motherboard) and mark Enable IO APIC. In my case I made a correction of base memory because VirtualBox does not recognize 4 GB of RAM, but 3.5 GB, so I had to put 1.5 GB which is less than half and therefore recommending you this.

Re: Windows 8 is lagging in VirtualBox

Before installing the Virtual box, You must ensure that your processor hold up Virtualization Technology. If you have not activated, activate this feature through the BIOS of your PC, Windows 8 will not work otherwise. Start VirtualBox and install it. Then click on "New". This opens the wizard to configure a new virtual machine.I think that reconfiguring can solve the problem for you.

Just reinstall the Windows 8 in your computer and see if that can solve the problem for you. If the problem is with the Windows 8 installation then reinstalling will solve the problem for you.

Thank you so much, I have tried by repairing the system but that does not helped me and finally I reinstalled it as you suggested and it solves the problem.
