Does it still require Hardware Virtualization enabled??
I never had a problem running win8 on vbox.
in the system settings in vbox, for that vm, just make sure you set it to ICH9 and you should have no problems
I just ran default, otherwise I would have mentioned it.
Virtual DIsk Win 8
I have vmware workstation installed and could not run win8 x64 as "long mode is not supported". I never had problems running vmware x64 anything on AMD Platform, now that i got sucked into SandyBridge I can't even enable virtualization in BIOS.
I just uninstalled vmware and it's time to learn vbox
I've been trying for a while to install windows 8(.iso file) on a Oracle VirtualBox, but failed. A black screen ending with "This 64-bit application couldn't load because your PC doesn't have a 64-bit processor" keeps poping up. But is Intel Core 2 Quad running a windows 7 64 bit with Sp1. I google it, people has same trouble but no fix found.
Windows 8 DP is working in a VirtualBox (VirtualBox 4.1.8r75467) and also works VirtualBox with Windows 8 as Host (HP Compaq nc6400 Windows8 DP x64 with Apps)
Julian, check your BIOS for Virtualization and enable it. I do not know for certain if it helps, but I know mine is enabled.
