You have to consider that the host and the VirtualBox host are using memory as well. Assign no more than 50% of the available (not total) memory and see if it helps.

Replying to Perryg:

You have to consider that the host and the VirtualBox host are using memory as well. Assign no more than 50% of the available (not total) memory and see if it helps.

First: That is not the problem. There is also enough memory. And sometimes the virtual machine starts(20% of all cases and runs for 1-2 hours until it get frozen then. It is a stability bug. I have monitored the system several times. It is not a misconfiguration of mine.

Second: I can´t access the settings from the GUI(crashes every time: there is a separated ticket for that open) to modificate the memory allocation of the VM and I don´t want to figure out how to do it by command line.
