    It's not. Your hardware is the problem most likely or your virtual machine settings.

    Also this is not a bug.
    To be successful here you should read all of the following.

    Failure to do so will probably get your threads deleted or worse.

    Try increasing the RAM memory allocated to the virtual machine, also the video memory and you might want to install Guest Additions, maybe these things will improve your performances.

    I have run BT4 in VirtualBox, and its fine for me too. As sickness mentioned, raise the amount of RAM allocated, and if you installed it in the VM, the Guest Additions help too (at least in terms of usability).

    Have you tried running other virtual machines? How does their performance compare?
