I want to run Windows 7 VM on Ubuntu in my machine and found a quite confusing problem.
My machine is an i5 with 8 GB ram (4GB x 2).
Both the Ubuntu and Windows 7 installations are 32-bit. In order to optimize the use of the ram, I want to give 4 GB RAM for each OS.
But is it possible that the two RAM are used for both OSes? That means each OS is allocated for 2GB of the two RAM. If yes, how could I do so? Any setting in the VMware?
Otherwise, is it possible to allocate each RAM for each OS only?
I am afraid that the machine will just use 1 RAM.
