    if i uninstall them both Windows 8 and Virtual box will it free my ram and hdd space which i allocated for windows 8 on virtualbox
  2. I'm frustrated that Windows 8 won't work when I install it in VirtualBox. I picked VirtualBox because it worked well when I tried Windows 7 beta in it. After I try the steps mentioned above and Windows 8 reboots after installation, it gets stuck at the boot screen or shows an error. I've tried several times, checking settings and still have not been able to try Windows 8. My Win7 machine has 150GB of free hard drive space and 2GB Memory. Please help!!
  3. A VM doesn't work well if you're demo'ing on a tablet because you lose the touch features
