Virtual machine no longer works after upgrade from Windows 7 to 10? RRS feed

  • Question

  • On my laptop I initially had Windows 7, and within Windows 7 I had a Linux virtual machine (Oracle VirtualBox). Windows 7 then got upgraded to Windows 10, and now VirtualBox (which was working perfectly prior to the upgrade) now does not work.

    When I attempt to start up the Linux virtual machine, it causes a blue screen, and I am told my laptop has encountered a problem and needs to restart. Then that's what happens and it happens every time. I have consulted people on the VirtualBox forums and they tell me it's a Windows 10 problem rather than a VirtualBox problem.
