I have Windows 7 loaded on a newly built computer consisting of the following components:
Gigabyte EX58-UD4P System Board
Intel i7-920 Processor
12 Gb Corsair DDR3 Ram
nVidia GeForce 9800GT PCI-e Graphics Card
After loading the 64 bit version of Windows 7 I loaded the 64 bit Virtual PC Beta and then the 64 bit XP Mode Beta.
I am finding that the XP window freezes for approximately 30 seconds at random intervals ranging from 10 seconds to 3 1/2 minutes. I checked the properties of My Computer in the XP window and found that the memory allocated to the XP virtual machine was only 256 MB. After some searching I found the settings and I increased the memory allocation to 1024 MB. That change did not help. As is the XP mode is unusable due to the freezing.
I will update this post if I have anything further to contribute.
In Settings the choices are:
Shared Networking (NAT)
Realtek RTL8168D/8111D Family PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet NIC (NDIS6.2)
The default that was selected is Shared Networking (NAT), I don't see a chpice for External Network. Which of the above do you recommend trying?
