Having machines in the cloud means that you can have a few extra machines on peak times, and then throw them away again when you no longer need them. This will save in cost compared to needing more machines and then having them on premise, having to maintain them, while you don't normally need them at all. The other advantage is also that it becomes very ...

VMware works, as a downloadable version, as a user-level program. It uses a virtual machine monitor to intercept real x86 instructions, and a device driver to execute concurrent execution of a guest OS with CPU virtualization implementation to get hardware-assisted virtualization in order to run guests through its VMM while still being on top of an OS and ...

Short answer: you can't shrink the max size, you can only increase it. You can, however, create a VDI with the size you want and clone the old VDI into the new VDI. There are some gotchas, so read on. Cloning the old VDI into the new VDI works only if you can guarantee the following things: You have enough space on the host physical hard drive to ...

No, it is not possible to attach NIC hardware directly to the VM such that the host is not processing the signals at all. doing so would break the VMWare virtual drivers that allow the VM to receive and decode the signals. you will have to rely on IP configuration to ensure that your packets flow in the right logical fashion.

I'm now using XP since a longer time on my host with an SSD. As said in the comments above, VMware wraps the HDD access and lets it run over the hosts drivers as it seems, so the typical bookkeeping and optimization routines of your SSD are run.

virt-manager says explictly that macvtap does not work for host to guest network communications when you set it up. I simply added a second nat based interface, set it up in the guest, and use that to communicate with my host.

Because the VT-x setting is typically locked at power on, it is necessary to fully power down the system after changing any VT-x options in the firmware (BIOS/EFI). A simple reboot is not sufficient! It may be related only for Intel processors

I hadn't realized that the steps for accessing the BIOS had changed in Windows 8.1, but this is the MOST helpful link for this problem!: http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/how-to-access-the-bios-on-a-windows-8-computer/ Once you enter the BIOS by following the steps from the link above, Enable "SVM" and you should be good to go!

I just had this same error when installing the Windows 10 preview. From what I read you need to enable Data Execution Prevention in your BIOS, but as you are running Windows 8 this must already be enabled. The setting that made things work for me was switching "Enable Nested Paging" to off. (Under System > Acceleration).

You didn't mention how your RAM is allocated. if the VM is too small it will cause paging activity this could show up as page faults in the VM. Thinking this might keep your cpu load as you swap in and out from your swap space (if its in ram disk you probably won't see much host IO mainly VM io)

Thanks to this guy: https://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=63876&p=300134#p300134 I was possible to merge my disc and the snapshot to a new disc, wich I could simply set as a new disc to a new machine.

Check this link. http://blogs.msdn.com/b/virtual_pc_guy/archive/2006/07/10/661958.aspx Answer is from Ben Armstrong’s Virtualization Blog here are actually two meanings for 'VMM'. The first is 'virtual memory manager' - this is part of the Windows operating system and has nothing to do with computer virtualization - and everything to do with operating ...
