You can start by researching the minimum information needed in a problem report. I.e. an adequate description and a VM log.

Zip the log and you should have no problem attaching it here. We will still require a description of the circumstances of the problem.

You'll need to explain the situation with a lot more details. This isn't Twitter, you can use more than 128 characters. ;)

When does the VM freeze? At the beginning? In the middle? Because your VM shut down after you requested it, after more than 4 hours of operation:
04:06:52.349293 Console::powerDown(): A request to power off the VM has been issued (mMachineState=Stopping, InUninit=0)
04:06:52.350441 Changing the VM state from 'SUSPENDED' to 'POWERING_OFF'

What we need (besides the details) is a complete VBox.log, from a complete VM run, where the problem occurs:
  • Start the VM from cold-boot (not from a paused or saved state) / Observe problem / Shutdown the VM (force close it if you have to).
  • With the VM completely shut down (not paused or saved), right-click on the VM in the VirtualBox Manager and select "Show Log".
  • Save only the first "VBox.log", ZIP it and attach it to your response. See the "Upload attachment" tab below the reply form.

I need to see the log. I asked for the log. I gave you the instructions.

I see you have some issues providing details. If this is a language issue, see https://translate.google.com/

That log show VT-x is active, good, no seemingly glaring problems like a Guru Meditation, and the guest seems to shut down ok. The guest OS is doing something guest-os-like. Seems that Virtualbox is working.

I do see this in the log:
00:00:05.561911 RamSize <integer> = 0x0000000040000000 (1 073 741 824, 1 024 MB)

1GB memory seems low for a Windows 10 OS. Try 2 or 4 GB, your host at the time of starting this log had
00:00:05.341772 Host RAM: 16292MB (15.9GB) total, 7467MB (7.2GB) available


As mentioned before in your previous topic where you were trying to solve this problem (which you abandoned btw to start this one on the same subject),

Have you googled anything like "OOBEREGION Windows 10"? Or "OOBEKEYBOARD Windows 10" from the previous topic?

It no longer freezes after I changed the VM settings to that it will use 4 processors and not only 1 but now every time I finish the setup it resets the windows setup and I have to start from that point:

Other than ejecting the install CD before the final reboot, then I can't think of anything to try. You should really contact Microsoft if you want Windows support.

I would however reduce the core count in the VM to 2. Your host has 4 cores total, for stability you do NOT want to share all of them with a VM.
