Same problem. I solved it connecting the hard disk to a USB 2.0 port (my computer have both: USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports). Probably much slower data transfer but I can live with that. Regards.

There is a quite old, really unsresolved bug about this --- see this comment on the virtualbox issue tracker. There is even a still-open bug here. I think that the resolution has been not to fix it for XP. A workaround is stopping and restarting VBoxTray.exe in XP. Working partially; more info here on superuser.sx. What I used to do was using the Task ...

I am unfortunately not sure if I understood all questions the right way, so please feel free to ask again if something is not clear: VirtualBox is a usual application as e.g. a Word processor is. That means the application asks the underlying OS (because an OS cares about the resources a computer HW has) for RAM. Of course it is a special application ...

Most BIOS and CPUs now have 'Virtualization Technology' of some sort. Depending on the manufacturer, this may be called VT-x, or AMD-v. You should first determine if these can be enabled within your BIOS, and then, if they were available, enable them within the BIOS and then within your Virtual Machine's settings within VirtualBox. Another thing that will ...

Your machine's BIOS is currently disabling virtualization. On startup, press enter (or equivalent for your machine) to enter the BIOS. Locate the Virtualization option - for me, it's in the "Processor" menu. There should be an option labelled something like "Virtualization Technology". I imagine it's disabled, if you're having this issue. Toggle it to be ...

The linked question addresses increasing the size of a virtual disk. Big picture, to do this, you give the VBoxManage command to increase the image size, then start the virtual machine, and use gparted or equivalent to increase the partition size. If you want to decrease the size, you would have to reverse the steps - first shrink the partition inside the ...

You can put in as much RAM as your laptop will hold. 64 bit systems have no practical limitations on RAM size. As said above, an SSD will help with your swap speed. Your laptop claims to be able to hold a max of 8gb of RAM. This is likely a limitation of the motherboard, although you can try two 8gb sticks, but no guarantees on that. In short, it looks ...

From the error message, it seems to stem from "Cannot allocate memory." When creating the VM, did you leave the amount of RAM dedicated to the VM set at 512MB? 512 is listed as the minimum for Kubuntu, but 1024 would work much better. There should be no issues running Kubuntu in VBox. I suspect your .iso is damaged. Re-download and try again (version 15 is ...

Certainly possible. I actually created a small script which sets up a virtual environment like you describe (although I use it purely as a server, I develop on my local machine).
