  • I have installed Oracle Virtual box and tried to launch the virtual machine, but still facing the same problem, the machine is restarting even before windows starts.


    Anyone is facing this same problem ?

  • Your problem may be solved by changing the controller to IDE (from SATA) in the virtual box setting area.

  • I have also the same problem. I tried with Virtual PC 2007 and also with Oracle VirtualBox and the problem is the same: the virtual machine keeps restarting and restarting and never go up. I have also changed the controller from SATA to IDE and then the same problem. Maybe this is related to my host environment, I'm using a laptop with Windows 7Pro 32bits with 3GB of RAM. Do you know if is related to OS or RAM of my laptop?. Do you already solved the problem?. Any suggestion I will apreciate it.

  • Trying VPC 2007 is not going ot help at all. Don't try it as it will not support CRM2011 which need to be installed on 64 bit windows 2008 server.

    Virtual box should work as it supports running 64 guests even if the host is 32 bit. The SATA to IDE change has worked for many people. If nothing is working propbably you should upgrade the system to 64 bit with atleast 4 GB of RAM

  • ...Does anyone else find it slighty amusing that we have to use an Oracle product in order to work with Microsoft VPC's if we only have W7 an OS?!

    I sincerley hope the rumour that I heard of Windows 8 Virtual PC supporting 64bit guests is true!
