Windows Server 2012 very slow on VirtualBox

July 27th, 2012 | Posted by Jeffrey Paarhuis in Uncategorized

I’ve installed Windows Server 2012 Release Candidate on my VirtualBox today. Everything worked fine till I installed the Guest Additions, it suddenly became slow and unresponsive from time to time, especially when using Internet Explorer. Because it happened after installing the Guest Additions, I thought it had something to do with the 3D acceleration, so I disabled that and now it works fine.

So, just disable 3D acceleration on the video properties and you’re good to go!
