    Virtualbox questions


    I'm currently rebuilding my system and would like to explore some options with virtualbox. When I install win10, I would like to have a virtual install of Windows 7 using virtualbox. How large is the Vb-Win7 install? Could I have VB-win7 running on a USB/other HD as opposed to main HD? Are there any known issues with Win7 running inside VB? Will there be any system or file conflicts with running win7 VB from Win10? Thanks in advance.

    :)

It was on that screen for more then 30mins and so i force a shutdown on the original Win7 OS to et rid of the VirtualBox OS shutdown screen. Rebooted and tested VirtualBox with the game and got the same error message as shown in my first post.

    EDIT: Gone through all the steps till i came to rebooting the VirtualBox OS. After the system coming up normally, i checked if the 3D acceleration is enabled by running dxdiag. Here is what i get...
