    Hi

    I have a Dell Precision 490 with virtualization enabled in bios. System is running XP Professional 64 bit. When I try to install VirtualBox I get the following message: "Software has not passed Windows Logo testing to verify compatibility with this version of Windows"

    I cancelled the installation as I did not want to run the risk of crashing my system. Is this a common problem?

    Thanks

    Well honestly speaking, VirtualBox isn't a good tool for virtulization, Sure, it has some features that are only available in it, but it is very buggy and I myself don't trust it. I recommend trying Vmware Player, or if you're willing to spend a few bucks, go for the full-blown workstation. Vmware is the "guru" of virtualizaiton, and you'll also find it much easier to use than VirtualBox.
