Windows 10 on Virtual Box | Unable to allocate and lock memory | Virtualbox Guru Meditation error

As Microsoft is continuously updating their technical preview for Windows 10, we are sure many of you out there are trying out the latest release 10074, that adds(?) many features. As a precaution, we always use Oracle VirtualBox for testing such releases and never had more issues than with the pre-releases of Windows 10!

One of the regular errors we came across were about “Unable to allocate and lock memory” while the VM started, and gradually pops up another window titled “Guru Meditation”, asking us to view the log files (/me chuckles, when Google can do that for us). We came across a wonderful post, that explains how to resolve this particular dreadful situation with VMs!

and here we are linking the same POST for you! Enjoy and Enjoy your Windows 10 VM

Windows 8, Should Microsoft enable the start menu?

Huge arguments everywhere! Being developers all around the clock, #windows7bugs believes, the choice should be left alone on individual user.

We are trying to demonstrate, how a classic menu approach would make things a bit better for developers, techies who have to browse through pool of sub-menu elements to do their everyday job!

Windows 8 new startup interface

Okay, we are techies and we will find out what we want from the tiled interface (after spending pretty decent time) pool and “try” to pretend that we are with the move

Worse scenarios, we just use classic shell and get straight on to our desired application. We are not ashamed to say we are from the ol ol schools Smile

Bravo, now we can see Microsoft sending away few techies who thought they would be remembered for their “outstanding” visionary approaches with a no-harm meant “start” button elimination and easy access to applications through “metro” tiled application UI!

Yes, Microsoft, bring back what was there, let the users decide whether they want to change, finally like our employer always reminds us “Customer is the GOD”. So listen to customers and give them what they ask for.
