[Solved] Difficulty in virtualizing Windows 10 inside Linux [Solved]

Postby ricardoclaus » 27. Oct 2017, 18:46

Dear,
I need to virtualize Windows 10 x64 in Virtualbox by running Linux.
When booting the VM, the home screen appears, however, it freezes, it only stays there.
I used this same ISO to create a Win10 VM inside Win10.
Using the same settings I used in windows 10, I can not virtualize Windows 10 on Linux.
Does Virtualbox for Linux have any peculiarities other than Virtualbox for Windows?

  • Follow a "start the VM from cold-boot" / "observe error" / "shutdown the VM" cycle.
  • With the VM shut down completely (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).

No. Not at this point at least.

VirtualBox VM 5.0.40_Ubuntu r115130 linux.amd64 (Apr 20 2017 06:58:05) release log
It looks like you're using the Ubuntu fork of VirtualBox. You can either ask in their forums for help, or completely remove/uninstall/delete/purge their version and install the official version from the Downloads section of VirtualBox (https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads)

The rest of the comments will help your setup, but I won't be able to assist you anymore, unless you have the official VirtualBox installation.

00:00:00.537352 PortCount <integer> = 0x0000000000000009 (9)
Any particular reason why you have 9 ports in your SATA controller? And you've assigned your DVD drive to port #9? Select

00:00:00.537687 [/Devices/usb-ehci/] (level 2)
Windows 10 supports USB3 out of the box, so, you might as well enable that option.

00:00:00.537207 NumCPUs <integer> = 0x0000000000000002 (2)
00:00:00.729858 CPUM: Logical host processors: 4 present, 4 max, 4 online, online mask: 000000000000000f
00:00:00.729903 CPUM: Physical host cores: 2
You have assigned all your CPUs to the VM. The host is going to run low on resources, since VirtualBox cares about physical processors, not logical ones. See: CPU Cores versus threads and Why is it a bad idea to allocate as many VCPUs as there are physical CPUs?

00:00:00.853087 GUI: 2D video acceleration is disabled
And the 3D acceleration is disabled as well. Enable them both please. And while you're at it, increase the vRAM to 256 MB.
