The official support forums for Windows 10 have seen a rapid increase in threads for the past 2 days, probably being fueled by the unexpected release of the latest Windows 10 build.

In this short article we’re going to talk about an issue reported by a Windows 10 user, and I’m sure many of you have had it as well. He claims some problems with Virtual Box:

I’ve got a 30 GB VHD with 6 GB OF VRAM, so WHAT’S UP? Had no problem like this with previous builds, and whats more, everything with and attached to the modern design takes a long time (sometimes 7 minutes) to open up (Start Menu, Cortana, Taskbar items, etc.,) and Modern Apps do not open up at all except for Settings!

I am aware that this is unfinished, but I did not have any problem like this before. And this build, including the Feedback app is totally unusable because of these problems.

Just like he says, you need to be aware that we’re talking about early builds, so precaution is what should be on your mind all the time. Have you had the same problem?

If so, how did you manage to solve it? Do share your comments and suggestions below and let’s try to find a solution together, if there is one.

  • I updated the previous build of the Tech Preview (which worked fine) to build 9926 on the latest VBox 4.3.20 and found that the mouse pointer lagged a bit and that I was unable to increase the screen resolution beyond 1600 x 1200. The previous build allowed 1920 x 1200, but nothing I try on 9926 seems to get me beyond 1600 x 1200 (apart from simply stretching the display, which looks terrible).
