Virtuabox super slow, cannot sign in to windows

Postby Finite1 » 29. Nov 2021, 19:46

Hello Folks,

I am trying out Virtuabox and it is not going well.

After having setup my VM and installed Windows on it, created a user account and logged in once I fgind that now I cannot login again as a blank black box pops up when I try. The VM graphics are super super slow even with hardware acceleration on and I am really finding this software terrible and not very good.

Did I do something wrong?

Start the VM from full power off, not save-state. Run until you see the problem happen, then shut down the VM from within the VM OS if possible. If not possible, close the Virtualbox window for the VM with the Power Off option set.

Please right-click the VM in the main Virtualbox window's VM list, choose Show Log. Save the far left tab's log, zip the log file, and post the zip file, using the forum's Upload Attachment tab.
