you want to extract byte array. The following code will yank 2KB and write to a new file: $byteArray = Get-Content binary.bin -Encoding Byte -TotalCount 2KB; [io.file]::WriteAllBytes('c:\binary.bin', $byteArray)

comment Ubuntu 12.04 VirtualBox on powerful W7 quite slow
I'd still suggest trying VMWare instead, I run Ubuntu VMs on my Win7 in VMWare Player without issue. Single CPU, 1GB, and it runs Lubuntu fine. I'm sure if you put 4CPU + 4GB it would run fine (though your host machine may slow down). I'd also suggest isolating the CPUs you are using. Set the CPU affinity on your VMs to say CPU5-8, and set the affinity on your heavy apps to CPU 1-4. Run some perfmon on your CPUs to see what happens when under heavier load.
