Tuxedo laptop with Windows in Virtual Box

Updated: 28 March 2024

I’ve had trouble running a Windows VM inside Virtual box on my Tuxedo laptop. The VM frequently crashes and sometimes consumes all the RAM of my host laptop also, requiring a restart.

Two good pieces of advice I’ve had from Tuxedo support:

  1. Turn off 3D acceleration: Virtual Box > The VM > Settings > Display > Enable 3D Acceleration.
  2. Limit the CPU the guest is able to use to 75%.
