VB limited to 4GB RAM on Mac?

Postby bhmcrae » 14. Apr 2009, 23:46

Hello,

I'm running VirtualBox 2.2.0 on Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard). However, I can only assign 3584 MB of RAM to the virtual machine (even though I am running 64-bit Ubuntu on a Mac Pro with 16GB of RAM).

Is 2.2 not really 64-bit on the Mac? Will it be able to address more RAM soon?

Thanks,
Brad

From the FAQ:
Although the manual claims 64-bit support for VirtualBox 2.0.0 this feature is not yet available for Mac OS X hosts.

I also am using a Mac Pro and would like to extend the maximum RAM. I have been using Fusion to do some SBS 2008 testing but would really like to use VB is possible.

EDIT. Just saw the above post. Thanks.
Hope this is resolved soon.
