interesting, didnt know that. but what happens if apps in win need more memory? im using the above settings in parallels and win runs without any problem at all.Windows 7 in a virtual machine is actually happiest with 1 proc and 1gb of memory. It's a technical dissertation, but it's about how it makes the memory calls through the hypervisor. adding procs and memory to the VM in most instances will actually slow it down more often than not.
If you are running a 64 bit OS in a virtual box then then there no problem.How much RAM can Windows 7 (32bit) take in VirtualBox? I've heard that giving it too much can cause crashes and problems. I'll be installing 8GB next week, so there is plenty to go around
