I've installed Windows 8 Consumer Preview to a virtual machine using Oracle VM VirtualBox (4.1.14). It works well except for occasional temporary lock-up / freeze / hang interruptions.
It will freeze for about a minute and then resume like normal for several more minutes before freezing again.
Windows 7 Professional 64-bit
16 GB RAM
Intel Core i7 (quad core, hyper threading, virtualization) CPU
Windows 8 Consumer Preview 64-bit
2 GB RAM
How should I configure VirtualBox to run Windows 8 well?
