Which multicore option are you talking about?

VBox does not yet support multiple CPUs in the guest.

Right now when I run VB it only uses 1 CPU on the HOST computer. Macpro 8 Core.

Any New Updates?

So far VirtualBox emulates exactly one guest CPU. Support for multiple guest CPUs is work in progress. Nevertheless, VirtualBox will benefit from having more than one CPU core on the host as each VM will contain of several threads, mainly for I/O devices.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed

Support for more than one guest CPU was added with VBox 3.0.0. Please test VBox 3.0.2.
