Hello all, I have an AMD 8150 not OC'd, 8gb ram DDR3, and I run Windows 7 64bit and Ubuntu 64 bit on seperate drives. I do this due to past experience that if Ubuntu somehow becomes corrupt it seems to make booting into Windows difficult. I know I should learn to just prevent/fix that when it happens but it is easier for me to do it this way. I have run Window OS-VM's before using Ubuntu as a host, and liked the set up I just don't want to live in Ubuntu fulltime. I have Windows 8 and I want to move onto it....but...I have 7 set up just perfectly, it works flawlessly (my opinion of course), and am not ready to completely give it up. Toss on Ubuntu and now it becomes very cluttered. I would like to install 8 64 bit as the host on a 320gb hdd, install 7 and Ubuntu as VM's, give Win7 80-100gb and Ubuntu 50-70gb statically. I would enable the Virtualization within the bios so I could use more than just 1 core for the VM's.. Is this going to affect the performance of the host when I am not running a VM or only when I run the VM?? Oh I would use VirtualBox for the VM software.
