CentOS 5.2 crashes when installing it
Your problem is related to the free RAM space on your PC. Some other processes are consuming a large portion of memory which makes less memory available for the virtual OS than the size indicated in its settings.
Press “Ctrl + Shift + Esc” to start Task Manager. Find out the process(s) that are consuming a lot of memory and kill them. Also, close any browser, media player or any other software that might use a lot of resources. The best choice will be closing all applications visible to free lots of RAM spaces. Close them from their interface.
Restarting your PC might also help free required RAM space. Also, change the RAM size of your virtual OS to a greater one.
Now, your problem should have solved.
