Yep, I typically save so I have the ram freed up.

i tried to follow the steps with vmwplayer 3.0; and when am about to launch the vm and configure the root the rig just goes into bsod.

linux distro used: ubuntu 11.10 amd64
host os: win7 64 ultimate sp1 updated
x6 1090t
4gb: allocated 2048mb to VM
bridged network
numvcpu : "6"
maxvcpu: "6"
host display setup: hypersli patched for dual 470's

i tried with other revisions of vmwplayers and ofcourse its not letting me go boot the vm with more than 4cores.

thanks OCN!

Stick with the VMware that is mentioned. But also try ubuntu 10.04. If you're using a virtual machine I can't imagine you'd be dead set on using the newer ubuntu anyways. Plus 10.04 probably uses a slightly smaller amount of cpu to actually run.

thanks for the reply however the bsod still occurs when am about to setup the root, an error "usb" etc. pops out even with the 10.04 ubuntu amd64

sorry linux noob.

Try turning off the USB controller in the vmware settings.

Quick question, but is it the VM that has the BSOD..? (I'm a bit of a *nix noob, not sure whether BSOD is an issue on that type of OS...)

BSOD is a windows kernel panic :D So Im guessing the host is actually crashing, not the guest (VM).
