Does Puppy run much slower in the virtual box? Too slow
for impatient persons like myself?
Could this be a way to get puppy on new UEFI machines?
Yes, an old thread nooby but I did something similar just recently, using VMWare instead of Virtualbox. Lucid will not run on my current laptop so I ran it in VMWare inside Windows 7. It was FAST. It is important to turn on the virtual machine extensions in the computer's bios--mine were off by default, but once I did that Lucid ran full screen as fast as ever. I see no reason why this would not work in Windows 8. It should work with Virtualbox too but I have no recent experience with that.
