Virtualbox 64bit or 32bit guests?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 15, 2010
I've got an ubuntu 64-bit host running virtualbox. I want to setup several linux guests which will only have 1 or 2 GB of RAM. Is there any reason to to install the guests with a 64-bit OS, or can I install 32-bit and not notice any difference?
Thanks in advance!
FreeBSD on ubuntu using Virtualbox

Everytime I try to install Freebsd on ubuntu using virtualbox it installs a bit and then just reboots. It says something about "no dump"?
Anyone know what to do?
PCBSD in Virtualbox
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 18, 2007
Not really sure whether to post this here or in Virtualization, but if I got it wrong it can always be moved.
So, I've been trying to setup PC-BSD in Virtualbox, and simply can't get it to boot. The MD5 on the installation image checks out, and the installation itself goes fine. But, when I try to boot from the virtual hard drive, it hangs at the splashscreen.
I've tried various options from the initial boot menu, but only the command prompt option works. All of the others hang, and rebooting from the command prompt hangs as well.
I chose to try out this distro because people say it's the "easy" one. I know that with some BSDs, it's necessary to configure Xorg before it will work correctly, but I was under the impression that wouldn't be necessary here.
Anyway, I'm curious to try this out, so any recommendations about how to get this up and running will be appreciated.
64bit VirtualBox host running a single 32bit guest, good idea?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 19, 2010
I need to host a Windows 2003 (32-bit) guest VirtualBox image.
My machine is a top of the range Intel i7 920.
Ignoring all RAM benefits/limitations, should I install Ubuntu Server AMD64 or x86 for the host OS (along with the AMD64 or x86 versions of VirtualBox)?
Or is it bad to run 32-bit guests in 64-bit hosts?
issue with installing hyperv role on a 2008x64 virtualbox vm on ubuntu64 host
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 21, 2010
i currently have ubuntu64 installed on my laptop and im using virtualbox to setup numerous vm's. one of the vm's im running is 2008 r2 x64.
virtualization is enabled in bios on the host and virtualbox automatically enables VT-x/AMD-V for the 2008x64 vm. i have also changed the vm's cpu count to 2.
2008 r2 x64 has installed without any issues but when i try to add the hyper-v role it tells me the cpu is not compatible. its already enabled in bios and in the vm settings so im not sure what else to check

Virtualbox very very slow
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 6, 2008
I was used to vmware, and decided to install virtualbox. Well it is
tremendously slow, for starting even, and for
displaying any windows. It is like the CPU is 200pct running in parallel.
Well I do not know what can be wrong with virtualbox, but it is of total no use.
If you would like more information about the system, please do not hesitate. I
would rather that it works virtualbox, but

Mac OS X Lion host, Latest VirtualBox, Pangolin Guest 32 or 64 bit?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 25, 2012
I've got a 2011 MacBook Air running Lion, and the latest VirtualBox. I'm looking to perform a new Ubuntu install using 12.04 (Pangolin). I'm just wondering, should I go with 32-bit or 64-bit in the guest? I know VirtualBox will do both, but I confess I still don't understand the practical issues/differences/tradeoffs.
Really I just use the Ubuntu VM for light development-type stuff (say scripting, like Lua or Python) now and then. I'm probably more concerned about battery usage than raw performance.
Advice? Is there a big page somewhere that will explain all the trade-offs to me?

Ok, here is my issue. I have ubuntu server 10.10 installed with ubuntu desktop installed on top of it (gnome). I have virtual box and was able to get it running good with a dynamic drive running Windows 7 64bit. I'm trying to install it now with a static drive to see if I see a performance difference. However it doesn't get past 0% every time. Any ideas on how to get past this?
AMD Phenom II (Quad Core) processor
1 TB Hard Drive, non partitioned, fully given to Ubuntu
(Trying to give 400GB to Virtual Windows 7 Pro 64bit)
8 GB DDR3 RAM (Giving 4GB to the virtual windows guest OS)
Need any other info please let me know, hope someone has a idea what is going on. I tried googling it, didn't come up with anything tho. Also this is using Oracle's VirtualBox, not VMWare or anything else.
