    Memory noises eh?

    It would be helpful if you d=said how much memeory you have and how much you assigned to the W7 VM.

    A note: You should make a fixed size disc not an expanding one. I have W7 in 20GB VM

    Another thing to add with caf is if you have limited physical memory do you
    have enough swap?

    IIRC when you set up virtualbox you can configure how much memory to
    allocate to each vm if you have over allocated then you will be swapping
    like crazy and probably crashing the kernel.

    Yeah ...I was away working on that....It was that I had created the hard disk images on /root........which didnt have enough space (i had partitioned it that way)......so all i had to do was change was to make the hard disk images on /home.......where i had the most memory........

    Thnx for helping guys
