Centos 7.7.1908 - Virtualbox crashes every time I try to setup a Win10 VM

Post by nix103045 » 2020/02/13 11:19:52

Hi – apologies if this has been asked before. Getting a bit desperate now! I am not massively experienced with Linux, but have had some experience using Debian builds over the likes of CentOS/RHEL…

Anyway, I have the above mentioned flavour of the OS, which has been updated and v’box installed. I am using a 1TB SSD, with 64GB RAM, 16 of which I have allocated to the VM. Virtualbox is happy with me setting up the base parameters of the VM – when I point it to the Win10 .iso, installation starts, and usually I can make it as far as the ‘Choose Language’ screen at setup before the whole PC crashes! Every. Single. Time.

I have tried using different .isos, and I’ve tried with each different type of virtual disk. I get the same result every time. Would anyone know why this is happening before I launch it out the window!!??

Thanks in advance.
