host OS : windows 7 pro 64 bit
sun virtual box 3.2.8 (latest with windows 2008 64 bit support0
I dont have windows 2008\ HyperV so i am trying to load the sharepoint 2010 preconfigured VHD on my windows 7 box using sun virtualBOX. i downloaded all the 20 files for option "a" from the microsoft site(
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=751fa0d1-356c-4002-9c60-d539896c66ce&displaylang=en) , extracted the files, started up VirtualBox, allocated it around 4GB RAM or more, selected windows 2008 64 bit as the OS then when i try
to boot the SP 2010 VHD VirtualBOX shows me a blue screen of death, restarts, show me two optons "launch startup Repair" and "start normally", starting nomarlly shows blue screen of death but when i select startup repair it asks me for Recovery CD which ofcourse
there is none after selcting the keyboard type which is "US" .
Question is what am i doing wrong, i heard that lots of people have used VHD in virtualBox and it seems to be working fine?
Any help is appreciated, i have downloaded all the vhd files twice and also extracted them twice, what could go wrong?
