I have window 7 64 bit Lenovo i7 with 8gb ram and 160gb ssd. I have virtual box version 4.1.16 installed (most latest to my knowledge)
I want to install ubuntu 12.04 as a guest inside of virtualbox. I have tried a couple of times now. It installs and "works" but the cpu in the guest os with no applications running is between 30% and 100%. The host machine is running without any slow downs. I have tried all sorts of different settings from within ubuntu and on virtualbox. But ubuntu continues to race.
Has anyone experienced this? Any help would be appreciated.
