Windows 7: New member: Can't install Windows 7 in Oracle Virtualbox 4.3.4

New member: Can't install Windows 7 in Oracle Virtualbox 4.3.4

Hi

I'm having trouble installing Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit with Oracle Virtualbox on a Windows 7 64-bit machine. It's a final exam, so that's why I'm doing it that way.

I get as far as "Windows is installing files" screen and then it comes up the error message:

"Windows failed to start. A recent software or hardware change may be the cause. To fix the problem:
1. Insert your Windows installation disk and restart your computer" etc.

I have previously successfully installed this, but now I can't get it working.

Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

Well i would try seeing if you can first install windows 7 by itself; and then try installing this oraclebox(whatever that may be) and see if it will fully install that way(if it will let you install it that way)

here also is a link that may help you find what you are looking for:

Microsoft Virtual PC is my choice to run Windows virtual machines. However, installing Linux on Virtual PC is not something I would recommend.
