How do you guys get ReactOS to have decent performance in VirtualBox?

Post by jimmysingh » Mon Aug 13, 2018 2:52 pm

I've followed the instructions in the wiki, installed guest additions with and without 3D acceleration, but every time I try to run something, even a web browser, CPU locks at 100% and the OS freezes at some point usually. Is it about some settings or my actual hardware? I would think my 6600K should be pretty capable, even though you can only use 1 core as far as I know

Do you allow 100% CPU Usage with only 1 core being used in the virtualbox settings?

You've probably hit an assertion failure or other bug. Turn on debug prints to see what's going on -- https://reactos.org/wiki/Debugging
