Questions About Running Windows XP Within VirtualBox
I just have a couple of questions about using Windows XP in VirtualBox within Linux Mint (64 Bit).
I have a feeling I already know the answers to my own questions but I just want to make sure my assumptions are correct.
Okay so Windows XP is 32 Bit which means that it is limited to under 4GB of RAM and when you run Linux Mint 64 Bit you now have access to over 4GB of RAM. So my first question is.....
1.) When you load up Windows XP in VirtualBox within Linux Mint can you assign and or will it be able to use more than 4GB of RAM within the VirtualBox session of Windows XP?
2.) Or is there some way to assign Windows XP 4GB of RAM and then also be able to assign a program being run within this virtual session of Windows XP for example Photoshop more RAM as well?
So Windows XP will have 4GB of RAM assigned to it and Photoshop has say 4GB of RAM assigned to it as well.
3.) My final question is about SSD (Solid State Drives). Windows XP does not really support SSD's but Linux Mint does, now what happens if you install Linux Mint on a SSD and then you run Windows XP with VirtualBox? Does Windows XP run and or save data improperly on that SSD?
I am open to any suggestions/information.
Thank You All In Advance
